University Post Likely

I haven't had enough time to work on various Web projects, including updates to the various blogs. This is one of those months when the rush of activity has a direction and purpose, though it has been exhausting.

For several months, I've been interviewing with a mix of colleges, universities, and corporations. I have struggled to find that ideal alignment of my traits with a potential employer. The job hunt was officially concluded in March after I decided that 200+ applications was enough; one last batch of interviews and then I was going to focus entirely on freelance work.

While trying to focus on consulting and creative writing the phone started to ring (literally). I experienced a flurry of phone interviews, e-mail follow-ups, and travelled to the Northeast. I had to schedule the job-related activities around speaking, editing a book draft, and general life activities. I hate disorder, but that's how life is.
The Lede: A private university has extended an interesting job offer and we are likely to accept the post.
I'm not comfortable sharing details until there is a signed agreement, but it is difficult to imagine I won't be accepting the faculty position. It's a good school in a nice location. Best of all, it is an exciting challenge that fits my interests.

In a few weeks, I will be posting more details.

Parents often ask me about students with special needs and post-secondary education. Part of accepting a post is a sincere belief that I can be an advocate for students. I will do everything I can to work with the office for disabled student services (also known as "disability services") and serve as a mentor to those students. The campus clearly is dedicated to student success, with several programs designed to support students.

As they say, stay tuned for more news.

  3. Even a sniff of good news can feel nicer than the stench of bad and/or no news.

    I hope it comes to something excellent for you!
