PhD Ranking - The National Research Council

 I recently applied for graduate programs all over the US. This blog is my research into how to survive as a career philosopher.

This blog is designed to keep you updated on professional news and movements in philosophy today, trolled from many site over the internet. Particular focus is on the professional aspects of philosophy such as how to create a good C/V, Publish papers, and understand hiring practices.

I will be posting my findings that I think could be beneficial to other undergrad and graduate students.
