Questions about publications before getting a job
I should mention that in addition to these two remaining articles, I can potentially produce two more papers/articles based on my dissertation research, one of which could seen as a stepping stone to a future research project. Also, I am not sitting on my thumbs during this whole process. I am going to be working on a research project in my department that can open up a few more doors for me in terms of publications and experience. I also have one other publication in one of the highest ranked journals in my discipline (but I am fourth author on that) and a few book reviews and encyclopedia entries, which I don't think count for much.
I am torn on what to do since both seem to be making compelling arguments. Should I submit both for publication now or wait? Or submit one and wait on the other? Begin writing more papers from my dissertation?
Thanks in advance for the advice! Always greatly appreciated.

**I should mention my advisor came into her t-t position from a post-doc. When she came in, she had four or so publications and a book contract, which was published in her second year in the department. So, she might be solely drawing upon her own experience.
