How can an artist/creative/designer self-promote without sounding like a sleazy car salesman? [more inside]
I'm a professor, at a pretty good school in a non-STEM type field. I like my current gig. I would like to move up to an even better gig, in a better location. The standard m/o for such things is a) produce a lot of good research, and b) wait for people to notice it. I'm already doing a). I don't really want to wait around for b). Catch: blatant shameless self-promotion both looks icky and off-putting and signals lack of commitment to current gig. Possible solution: hire a very discrete PR person. To do... what? Does such a thing exist, for individuals, who need attention from really specific groups of people? Or is this just a really ridiculous idea?

I really need to find a better job, but I don't know where to start. How do I even figure out what job to look for? It's pretty clear that there is no promotion path for me whatsoever in my current job, and there are rumblings that my entire department is about to get transferred to someplace where I don't want to be. The only reasons I'm still here are inertia, fear of the terrible job market, and the fact that self-promotion makes me queasy. [more inside]
