A blog associated with the Chronicle of Higher Education called Vitae, offers career advice and tips for academics. A recent post offers six quick tips about using conferences as an opportunity to mark your mark as a scholar. Some advice is a gimme–who is wearing jeans to these events?–but other advice and links are less obvious.
It’s worth a quick read and a precursory survey of the rest of the blog turned up a few other interesting articles. For first time conference attendees, veterans, or graduate students who are beginning to think about the job market.
