Huzzah for Mid-Career Mike at rateyourstudents.com! Looks like he has hit the sweet spot in his job search.

Money quote: “I do not have a long history in the academic job market, but one thing has come to me quite clearly: when it’s right, you know it. I’ve taken other jobs where my feelings were mixed. I needed a job and they had one. BOOM. But I’ve had my gut turn, too, and I tried not to get stuck in those places.”

Congratulations! In particular, congratulations on holding out for that elusive “fit”. Taking a job that you can’t stand isn’t worth it, now matter how wells it pays.
