Job season

I bet a lot of people outside universities don't know that universities have a job season, when the department usually has candidates visiting the campus. Ours has crept up over time. I interviewed in April, but now it tends to be February (and upper administration would like it to be earlier if we could).

We have interviewed for multiple positions each year since I've been here. So that's usually a minimum of four job candidates to meet, and often much more, in a few short weeks.

And I'm also in the thick of recruiting for the second year of my REU program.

So if I'm blogging less, those could be why.
