Had a nice mid-morning chat with TG today, yet another person who actually got a job via a job posting (guess I'd better start reading the Chronicle of Higher Ed on a more regular basis)! She asked about whether I was considering Rider, and I answered from a mostly admissions perspective, forgetting for the moment that my next job is likely to NOT be in college admissions. Felt bad about it afterwards, although I think I did a decent job of explaining my thinking to her in a post-visit email. Still, the whole thing reminded me of how hard it is to be "on" in the way that actively seeking out employment requires you to be. More motivation to do this well and quickly.
