I found these sentences hidden in a PhD acceptance letter:
“As you probably know, the job market in English has been tight for several years. In making the decision to enter a PhD program, you should consider that tenure-track teaching jobs at colleges and universities may continue to be limited.”
Wow. If only everything/one was so honest. That’s not even their responsibility, I don’t think.
I knew this going in…but, I still hope I can get a job teaching at the end of it all. When am I going to call you already?
That’s kind of what I was thinking. I’ll call Sunday afternoon if I haven’t heard from you. That’s when I make all my calls. Grandpa Corko gets one then too.
I don’t know about the job market. That was part of my fear.
