"I was only on the academic job market once, but during that time I felt like departments were looking for a different kind of work than what I was doing in the Multicultural Center and thought I was doing as well in my dissertation. I realized that we thought about the field of 19th-century multi-ethnic work very differently. I thought of it as more comparative or relational work, but the departments I interviewed with were looking for more clear-cut sub-fields. This experience of confronting disciplinary assumptions, combined with the autonomy I had in my other job, where my academic training was appreciated but not being put under scrutiny, made following a non-faculty track feel like the best of both worlds. I started to see a way to stay in the university, but in a different role and context."
