Start Lookin’ Now Folks!

As someone who has spent a large amount of time studying career theory, one piece of uber-advice I will share with you is to get to know your job market.  In fact, ask it on a date, take it to a nice Italian dinner, and then not call it (Anchor Man reference).

“How can I do that?” you ask.  Visit a few of the sites below.  Type in key words from your field.  It is your responsibility to read job specs, know the qualifications most universities require, and then blow those requirements to smithereens with your awesomeness.
