Unemployed Professors The Words People
Unemployed Professors started in 2011, after the writer Ed Dante’s essay The Shadow Scholar provoked endless hand-wringing and discussion about several converging trends: Un- and underemployment among academics, an economy where college is just about the only path to a hope of a middle class existence, students who feel disconnected from an increasingly impersonal, job training-focused educational experience, apathetic and overworked (employed) professors without the time to do forensic analysis of written assignments, and of course, the rise of digital tools like Turnitin.
Beginning with just one professor and an entrepreneur, we have expanded over the years to include a wide variety of specialists from almost every field. We were the first in the business to use auction-style pricing models, the first to innovate with creative promotions like free condoms and hilarious videos, and the first to sponsor a scholarship.
Today’s communication environment is not the same as in 2011. This is true whether you are looking at academic, business, or popular writing. We’ve watched the rise of digital learning environments, the creator economy, and remote everything, and we’ve seen the types of writing that these transitions in communication have created. We know what today’s students need, because we have taught them. We know that the student body has changed over the years as more non-traditional students have flocked to school – and we also know what has and has not changed in education, technology, and writing itself. That’s why Unemployed Professor is your best choice, whether you’re looking for a custom white paper for your NFT project launch, a business or grant proposal that will get results, unique copy for your webstore, or a powerful resume / cover letter combination.
