I had hoped not to have to entertain the thought of seriously re-applying for other jobs when I accepted my current position. Various things have led me to think that I will probably actively pursue other jobs once I finish the dissertation and get a couple peer-reviewed publications out, though. In that vein, Dr. Crazy’s musings on the job search while in a tenure-track position are thoughtful. For me, it’ll probably be at least three years before I look for jobs again (unless I get kicked out after the third-year review).

excuse me, aren’t all problems supposed to go away once you have a job? once you’re no longer a graduate student?
Ummm. No? Who told you that?
