🙁 Ugh, I’m sorry!

It is a TOUGH place out there these days with jobs and futures. It’s like one little mistake and they are off to someone else since there are enough people looking for jobs to be picky.

However, on the bright side I’m happy to hear you start your PHD in the fall! Thats a huge accomplishment!!

@aliavenue:  I understand. Not sure that I have any helpful information, except to say I’m there too.

I’ve been looking for a full time job for 3+years now. In the meantime I’m a part-time adjunct (teaching) making less money now than I did in graduate school and working just as many hours. The job market has been very depressing lately and I honestly, truly wish I could return my PhD. In the field I’m in because I took a position teaching I’m no longer competitive for faculty positions (no current, active research or funding).  Other jobs in the field I’m told I’m overqualified for, so essentially given the feedback I’ve received I’m not qualified to do anything really.

If it makes you feel any better, I’ve had my master’s degree for 2 years now and still can’t find a job with that degree. :/
