Job searches begin during different seasons for everyone. There isn't one right time. Hopefully, you have a job before you finish residency or fellowship. We have friends who have secured jobs 2 years before they are eligible to practice and others as short as 4 months. I told my husband long ago that I would prefer to be closer to the 2 year mark than 4 months. So much for my preferences.
But it is here. Interview season has called for us. We/he is up. This is the make or break point. This is it - THE ONE!
I am getting anxious just thinking about it. That either means that I will be on the computer more than I have been, or less. It means lots of blog posts, or a sparkling clean house. It means home-cooked three course meals with dessert, or take out. It means organized closets or piles of laundry collecting all over the house and no clean clothes to wear. It means lots of exercise or lots of chocolate. It is going to be a nail bitter.
We will have to see how this one shakes out. I am more nervous than my husband! This weekend can't come fast enough.
