So, today, I get an email from one of my professional friends asking me the name of my last place of work. Turns out that a friend of hers recently got offered a job at this school. She thought the name sounded familiar, and what do you know? She was right; my old place of employment. I quite enjoyed sumbitting a list of true experiences to argue against working there. Oddly enough, I could not think of one positive feature about this workplace, which says a lot about the situation.
I really hope to hear that the guy turns down the job offer.
Another plug for building an honest professional network. Speaking of professional networks, Alice at ScienceWomen has some great thoughts about building a peer network.
