After working for 5 years in an industrial environment I want to change to Academia. My CV matches the positions where I applied so far pretty well, but until now I have only received rejections.
I don't know how to handle these rejections, because I'm not used to that. When I wanted to change jobs in the past, I got an invitation for an interview and after that at least one week later I got a contract.
During a short interview by phone, the interviewer asked me if I carefully considered everything regarding such a position, since I have kids. Could it be possible that the reason for rejection is that I have two kids (which I mention in my CV)? Should I delete personal information like this from my CV?
For the ones that are interested in the answers from Academia, I just posted my question here
Got an invitation for an interview :)
