Margaret Goldberg of ABC University in Portland, OR referred me to you. She recommended you as an exceptional source of knowledge in teaching history at a college level.
My intent is to find an "in" into one of the schools in the Chicago area. I have a Master's Degree in history and I worked for two years as a teaching assistant in Eastern European history classes. I am looking for guidance when it comes to seeking an early, entry-level position. I hope to find out which people to target within a school or a department, how to approach public schools versus private schools and what positions are available to people with my education and experience.
I would appreciate hearing your opinion on how to navigate this particular career. I will give your office a call early next week. I look forward to gaining insight from you at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your time.
