Why I haven’t gotten a tenure-track position…

I can rest easier now knowing that I haven’t gotten a tenure-track position because I took 12 years to finish my PhD. If I hadn’t, I would be tt now, apparently. Inside Higher Ed shows that taking less time to get your PhD makes it more likely that you will be tenure-track after that.

It is a good thing to know if you are losing motivation to finish though. Do students in grad degree programs read Inside Higher Ed? I didn’t.

(Please note I was being facetious. I was tenure-track during my ABD phase.)
