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.

The Interns Are Getting Started

In my last post from AECT, When You Wear Many Hats, I alluded to the fact that as a group of interns that we were specifically working on some action items. Well, if you head over to the Intern blog and see the entry for AECT 2006 Interns: Continuing to Strengthen Connections you'll see three things that we have started to work on (it was actually the third one that I was referring to a couple of weeks ago, as it was in keeping with the graduate student issues wihin AECT that I was dicussing at the time - but all three are worthwhile action items).

Anyway, take a gander over there and see what we have started to work on. Hopefully sometime in November we'll be able to post more information on the third item and provide graduate students out there an opportunity to provide us with feedback as we move forward.
