By Sofia Kousi One of the most difficult things about completing a Ph.D. program is that it is a slow and seemingly never-ending project that is not contained within a 9-5 job schedule. You are never done, until you present your dissertation after many years of hard work. In between, there are very few milestones that offer the satisfaction of having completed something.

SPSP members share their advice on the best time to begin the job search process.
Let me begin by saying how extremely grateful I am to SPSP and to those on committee who selected me for this award.  Pushing the boundaries of a discipline that one calls home is not always comfortable.  Taking steps in directions not yet being pursued by others, leaving behind---if only temporarily—the security that being prototypically engaged can bring, and needing to find some points of support in the new territory one is exploring:  all of these can make one question, at least occasionally, whether the chosen ventures are likely to be satisfying and rewarding, whether in the short run, the medium, or the long run of a career.
