JFP, Round Two
In just 24 hours many of you will received yet another dose of humiliation. All the hard work, stress, sacrifice, and fretting over your wardrobe will prove to have been for naught. This year, there are almost no worthwhile jobs in Philosophy for people new to the profession; the few decent jobs will go to the new Ph. D.'s from four or five fancy departments, the rest is mostly grunt work for insulting wages. Things won't get better next year, either. Have you considered Law School?
