To market, to market...

For some reason, it occurred to me today that about 3/4 (maybe more) of this blog's devoted readers will be going on the market this fall. So, here are three things you can do in the coming weeks.

1) Send off that article before April 15. (Anything later than that risks not getting reviewed until after the fall.)

2) Sometime before the end of the semester, talk to the members of your committee. Discuss a timeline for completion and the fact that you are going to be going on the market in the fall. (You want your letter writers to be warming up over the summer.)

3) Write, write, write. (The best thing you can do for yourself is to have a brilliant dissertation. And most dissertations become more brilliant the more you work on them.)

If you don't have a copy of the unofficial job market guide, you can download one, for the time being, here.
