I feel like a fraud. I am currently writing job applications and the goal is to make yourself as incredibly awesome at all costs. Yet, I don't FEEL awesome. I know my research is important, and every time I present it I get an amazing buzz from the audience "This is so incredible" "What you are doing is so cutting edge" "Your research is so important in so many areas". And yet when it comes time to answering the 20+ selection criteria for jobs, I find myself struggling to justify just what it is about my research that generates that buzz. What is that makes this so thrilling to the audience? I have no idea... and yet it excites me to. I just hope that some institution sees the value in it with my attempts at justification...
