Hey all, hope you are hanging in there.
Last year I applied to a limited number of positions. This year I have applied to many more, 3 of which are positions that I applied to last year and never heard back from. This round, my cv looks a lot better and I am considering re-applying to these places. Do you have any advice on how to approach this? Should I contact the department chairs first? The reason is that I am thinking that if I would just submit the app, perhaps the committee would see my name and won't bother to take a second look at my much much better cv.
Any advice would be much appreciated!
