Also, the Career Center launches it academic job search blog to support you in that process:


Our blog will offer perspective, advice and resources on a variety of job search topics, beginning with our first post on what it means to be job search ready. The blog will also feature periodic posts from the real experts — faculty who bring the search committee perspective.

I hope you'll get involved with the blog in a few ways:

* Take some time to read the posts.
. And if you like what you read, go ahead and subscribe.
* Add your comments, share your advice. Each of you will have your own stories to share as you go through the job search process, stories that can help others as well.
* Let me know what you would like to read about. The blog will be most useful if it meets your needs, so I'd like to hear what's on your minds.
