Things are quiet around here. Too quiet. Inspired by this Twitter thread, and in the aftermath of the W incident, what bad advice about grad school or the job market have you been given? Or good advice?
I received no specific bad advice, just lots of conflicting advice. I was always told that getting a TT job was a longshot. I was told to NEVER go to APA Eastern unless I had a job interview. That is good advice I have followed. Last year, I didn't go even with job interviews (Hello Skype! "Can you see me?").
