"When I spotted the job advert at the Music Department I thought to myself that was the dream job I had been waiting for!
Yet, I had no clue how to prepare an application. As an artist I had no understanding of how academia works from the inside. Then, I stumbled upon a blog post on Academic Life about personal statements and standing out in job applications.
So I decided to take advantage of a 30 min free strategy session with Marialuisa: I certainly wasn't getting anywhere on my own.
This was definitely one of the best decisions I've made in my life.
I enrolled on a 3-month mentoring program and Marialuisa guided me through the process of writing all the application materials; these included a Research statement, a Teaching statement, a Cover Letter and an in-depth revision of my CV.
