NYC-based coach to help with confidence in academic job search?
September 3, 2014 7:39 AM Subscribe
I'm a PhD student in the Humanities finishing up my dissertation and starting to apply for jobs (outside of traditional academia, but with an academic bent) and post-docs. A mentor recently suggested that I should look into improving my interview and self-presentation skills, because I tend to come across as overly reserved and unconfident.

I'm not sure where even to begin -- would this person be a life coach? an interview coach? a career coach? I've done pretty extensive googling and I've found many (seriously -- many) options that aren't quite the right fit.
Can anyone recommend someone in the NYC area (not Skype, since body language seems important) or a service that would help me find someone in the NYC area who would be able to work specifically with an academic on these sorts of skills?
Thanks very much, in advance!
