As a fourth year doctoral candidate, in addition to having completed comprehensive examinations and prospectus and working on the dissertation, my thoughts are also turning towards the job market and securing that first academic position. This purpose of this blog is to chronicle the trials and tribulations of completing my Ph.D. and finding that first job.

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA: Experience the Shows, Dining, Shopping, Attractions, & Tours!
http://www.aace.org/conf/Cities/LasVegas/

Las Vegas, an ever-changing fantasy-land of a city, has seen unbelievable expansion since it emerged from the desert 100 years ago. Las Vegas continues to build upon its reputation as a vibrant showcase for the extraordinary. This is the city that attracts more than 38 million visitors a year by offering the grandest hotels, the biggest stars in entertainment, the highest caliber of award-winning chefs and master sommeliers, and, of course, the brightest lights.

Las Vegas offers unmatched entertainment. Some of the many headliners include Celine Dion (Caesars Palace), Barry Manilow (Las Vegas Hilton) and Toni Braxton (Flamingo Las Vegas). Broadway hits such as "MAMMA MIA!" (Mandalay Bay), "Phantom - The Las Vegas Spectacular" (Venetian) and "The Producers" (Paris Las Vegas) are amongst visitor favorites. World-class productions are also available and include Cirque du Soleil's newest shows, "KÁ" (MGM Grand) and "LOVE" (The Mirage).

While planning an evening of entertainment, look to the growing roster of gourmet restaurants and unparalleled wine and food adventures in Las Vegas. A host of fine dining and lifestyle magazines have honored the city for its fantastic fare and hailed individual restaurants for their exquisite cuisine,

A shoppers paradise. Drawing an influx of designers and upscale specialty boutiques, Las Vegas has become one of the premium world-class shopping destinations in the country.

It's not just a conference. it's a vacation! So plan to join us in Las Vegas for SITE 2008, a great conference in one of the world's greatest destinations.
