I’ve been researching jobs and I found what looks like the absolute perfect position for me. It’s a one-year fellowship that would begin immediately after I graduate (September ’09, and I finish in August). It’s with Human Rights Watch, and jibes perfectly in with what I want to do. The catch? 500 people applied last year. 22 got interviews. Holy shit.
I’m still going to apply. What do I have to lose, really? But I have low expectations. Also, this means more work for me, as I have to select a twenty-page excerpt from my seminar paper from last semester, and I really don’t know which twenty pages to pick.
