    Pat Conroy's mother once told him Southern Literature can be summed up in these words: "On the night the hogs ate Willie, Mama died when she heard what Daddy did to Sister."

Job Hunting

Finding a teaching position is hard work, and I’ve been working diligently at it for almost a month. I guess I thought it would be easier to find one since I’m in a graduate program for a “critical need” field. The truth is, you have to know someone to even get an interview, and networking is the best way to do that.  But it’s so hard. I want to be recognized for my hard work, great grades, academic accomplishments, and references from those who have seen me teach. Shouldn’t those count for more than who I know or don’t know?

It will be fine – I know a great position is out there for me…I am just ready for it. It’s time. I believe.
