The nibble has become a bite! I’ll be spending my Valentine’s weekend prepping for a phone interview, and I don’t mind that one bit.
Another thing I really like is that I’m getting involved with the search process at my own institution for a position that is strongly related to my prior lab gig. The head of the search committee asked me to go to lunch with a couple of candidates, attend their jobs talks, and show them around campus a bit. This is definitely a good opportunity for me to see other people go through the process themselves, and maybe build up some good job search karma.
