Hello -ello -ello -ello? Anyone there -ere -ere -ere? Job seeking!

It has been forever and a day since I swung by this place, and from the looks of it, nobody else has either.

I finally completed my PhD in social work in May 2017 and am deep in the throes of academic job search. I have a campus visit and job talk coming up in January. Otherwise, I have submitted dozens of applications and received first interviews with five other schools and not advanced to the next round from four (one interview was yesterday). Three schools rejected my application without an interview. I have heard nothing from the others.

Anyone have some good general advice for my campus visit in January? Also, is my response experience typical?
