Philosorapters - Preparing students for the job market
I doubt this is the right place to post this so I apologize if it's wrong.
I recently applied for graduate programs in philosophy all over the US. I realized at some point that I was doing about an hour of research a day and just storing it for myself. This seemed a bit on the selfish side so I decided that I would publish my findings on this blog. This blog is my research into how to survive as a career philosopher.
This blog is designed to keep you updated on professional news and movements in philosophy today, trolled from many site over the internet.
Firstly, particular focus is on the professional aspects of philosophy such as how to create a good C/V, prepare ones application, Publish papers, and understand hiring practices.
Secondly, I'm also quite interested in why philosophy, specifically critical thinking, is not taught in high school, and other issues in the profession.
I will be posting my findings that I think could be beneficial to other undergrads, graduates as well as post-doc students.
Please feel free to comment, criticize, or suggest research material.
Yet again, I apologize if this is posted in the wrong place,
I hope this blog might help philosophy students prepare for the job market if that is where they want to go.
All the best,
