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.

Must be the end of the semester

Well, I notice that it has been a few days since I have posted to this blog. I also note that most of the blogs that I follow (Johannes, Nate, Heather 1 and Heather 2, Bethany, etc.) have also been a while since there last entries (with the exception of Heather's re-design).

It must be that time of year, depending on which university you're at it is probably somewhere in the last three weeks of the semester. I know here are UGA, we have only a week and a half left before exams start. Papers to write and students' work to mark, not to mention research projects that are continuing, paper and conference proposal deadlines fast approaching. I can see why there is a lag in the blog traffic of these higher education folks.

Hope you will bear with us all during these last few weeks before we can get back on a more regular schedule.
