    Trivial comments. Not even a single deep thought.

    A preface to this video should be “assuming you have multiple offers…”. But then again, the video could have been titled “what to do when encountering a unicorn in the woods”.

    Not helpful at all. Everybody with IQ above 90 is already naturally considering these things.

    I have noticed that in humanities and cultural studies especially in areas such as political science and public administration, professors from the Middle East even those who graduated from top American universities and have numerous publications find it difficult to get offers even as sessional instructors in Canadian universities. Are these people considered below standards?
