Job Search Tip Carnival

Some readers of this blog may be on the academic job market -- as a 6-year veteran of said market, I feel for you.

Check out Tenured Radical's post on academic job-searching, and then read the 25 (and counting) comments -- a carnival of entertaining and contradictory advice. Mostly, it seems to come down to applying general principles to specific cases, and knowing when to adapt those principles to specific situations. For readers here who are looking around, good luck, and be careful out there.
