Getting rid of advisees

Perhaps “getting rid of” is the wrong way to say it :). Kara Kerwin has just accepted a position as Asst. Director of Electronic Media at Hamilton College. Way to go Kara! We still need to get her done with her thesis, but given the market right now, it’s great that she found such a nice match to her interests.

Cliff (Chunta) Peng defends his thesis, on factors motivating participation (and lurking) in online discussions, tomorrow morning.

Since all of my other advisees have either dropped out of the program or switched to someone else (I’m sure it’s my winning personality), that leaves me with only one advisee in the fall, Jia Lin, who will be moving out to the left coast in August and will be completing her dissertation (blog-related) out there.

Hopefully there will be some good prospects in the new class. If not, maybe if I am quiet enough no one will notice that I have no (local) advisees when the temporary assignments go ’round…

    Yeah, you know, the coast on the left. The Angels, more precisely.

    With something like 430,000 people filing for unemployment claims in one week, I feel incredibly lucky now. Oh so very lucky.
    I’ll be back to B-lo often enough :)

    I know that feeling Kara, having recently joined the ranks of the gainfully employed. Lucky is one word, but you have worked and prepared for this for a long time. Accomplished is another word.

    And I hope I get to see you once in a while!
