This talk could have been an hour instead of 90 minutes, and it was a bit too directed toward scholars in STEM (i.e., the focus on funding for lab assistants/equipment). Some of the advice given here would be fatal for humanities students.

Useful but probably would have been better with less backstory from the presenter and a few more minutes for questions

I wanted to hear more specific advise on how to prepare application materials, since I will be applying for positions this Fall. Unfortunately, the info provided was a little basic and not deep enough in my opinion to be helpful. I think it will also be more helpful to have separate sessions for applying for tenure track jobs and getting tenure.

Friendly presenter with an interesting personal story. However I find his advice extremely general and didn't get much out of the talk I didn't already know going in. In fairness I had attended similar talks at 2018 bps conference so I probably has my hopes too high.

This was a nice combo of anecdotal evidence of what this journey could look like and important information and topics that I hadn't thought about when thinking about tenure-track positions.
