I started to write a post about how I began the process of revising my application materials in anticipation of the fall job market. I started to point out that there's some good news. My CV is better. I can move some stuff in my research statement from "future projects" to "recent projects," and I can add some stuff to "future projects." But I cannot tell you how much I wish I didn't have to keep doing this. This will be my fourth year on the market, and I guess I just didn't feel like writing a blog post about revising my research statement again. And I wasn't sure how much anyone would want to read the blog post when I was done with it. So I gave up on that post, decided to write this one instead.
