How am I going to explain to you all of the ways that you sabotage and undermine yourselves, with the best of intentions, and with complete lack of self-awareness? So I will do what I can. I will list the ways that grad students act like grad students. I will name the behavior, describe it, and then explain how and why that behavior sabotages you in a job market situation. You drone on and on about your dissertation.

Ask a Guy: When a Guy Doesn’t Text Back…

Tuesday, November 20, Me this week!! I love the holidays! Spending time with my family, shopping, and getting to lounge on the couch are some of my favorite things to do during Thanksgiving Break.

Where Are They Now? 2017

After I finished my PhD I realized that in order to get my degree I had to overcome many of the same barriers as other graduate students. Going further, this brought up a key question: I covered areas such as financial support, elements of a thesis, time management, communication with your PI and coworkers, writing skills, and career planning.

She works evenings and he is often asleep by the time she gets home and then already at school when she wakes up. But we make it work. Some of the best advice they gave to incoming med students was to pick a duration of time during the week that you devote to each other. This goes for both parties or family members. We typically make a big breakfast, go to the beach or on a hike, and reconvene in the evening to cook dinner and watch a movie.

Her advice to combat this is to never let yourself believe that just because your partner is pursuing a career as an MD that you and your career are in some way of lesser value. This is the same even if your partner is going to law school or any other type of graduate school.

And both sex and work are governed by a set of rules that many people are able to learn just by being in the world. Asperger Syndrome compromises one’s ability to read nonverbal social cues. I study people, make notes for myself, and then test the notes to see what other situations my notes apply to.
