Every morning I have a ritual that I perform. No, not that one. Every morning when I get to work I fire up my computer, go get a cup of coffee, and then start surfing. And not just any surfing, there is always a pattern. I look first at email to see if anyone has commented on my last blog post. Sometimes there are a lot, sometimes not many. And it seems even fewer now that I’ve moved here to Word Press. But that’s ok. The next thing I do is read all my “Daily Read” blogs. Got to see what’s happened in the last 24 hours. After that I use my company time to look for another job. Ok, I don’t really look for another job as in going to Monster or Careerbuilders, but I do look at two sites. The first is ChurchStaffing.com where I look under the categories of “Media Technology,” “Communications Director,” and “Singles.” You never know.

The second site is The Chronicle of Higher Education. I mean, after all, I do work for a college. Here are some of the listings for today that I’m considering 😉 (6/27):

  • Chabot-Las Positas Community College District (California): Biology Instructor (I just like the name)
  • Pepperdine University: Chief Information Officer (have you seen the campus?)
  • University of Calgary: Assistant Professor of French (I’ve always wanted to be Canadian)
  • Colorado State University: Dean, Warner College of Natural Resources (can you say ski bum)
  • Yale University: Chief of Staff, Office of the Dean (Yale! My daughter could go for free)
  • Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (DC): Human Resources Manager (we are talking John Hopkins)
  • University of the South Pacific (Fiji): Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Hospitality Management (maybe not, I’m more of a mountain person instead of the tropical breeze kind of guy)
  • Hellenic American University (Greece): Four Assistant of Associate Professors, Multiple Disciplines (Greece! Home of education)
  • University of Hawaii, Manoa: Associate Vice Chancellor for Research (ok, again with the tropical breezes, but just think of how many friends I’d suddenly have – oh sure, now you start commenting)
  • University of Hong Kong: Assistant Professor in the Department of Anatomy (just for a year, maybe. Can’t you just see the resume now?)
  • Ball State University: Contract Faculty Position, School of Physical Education, Sport and Exercise Science (home of David Letterman)
  • Kwansei Gakuin University (Japan): Associate Lecturer of English
  • Harvard University: Assistant/Associate Professors in International Relations, Department of Government (if I can’t get Yale…)
  • Massey University (New Zealand): Roles Available at Massey University (home of the Hobbit)
  • International University of Nursing (St. Kitts, the Caribbean) Provost – Dean For Nursing (I’ll just do this one in retirement)

Tough choices all. And you may think I’m not qualified for any of them, but I’ve got my resume padded like you wouldn’t believe. I’ll drop you a post card when I decide and move.
