So I just wanted to update you all on the job search. I attended the job fair this past Thursday and although no jobs came of it (as reasonably expected!) it was a great learning experience because it forced me to confront and define both my strengths and my weaknesses. It should also be noted that it was extremely well run, so kudos to the Philly Uncubed team for coordinating such a successful event. If I learned anything it is that I am even more committed to a job specifically in Higher Education. Design is just not something I am built for, it has it’s own structure and language that are entirely foreign to me and the way I think. That’s all for now I guess, I’m back in Williamsport now and will continue to work on getting a teaching job but will probably not update regularly until the hiring season ramps up in the fall / spring. Until then, thanks for reading!
