At the end of one week and the beginning of another, we catch our collective breaths on the blog and gather up links to some of the posts that have either cycled off the home page or might have been lost in the shuffle.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and thanks for reading!

* We covered some things grad students do over the summer–part-time jobs–instead of what they should be doing–studying for qualifying exams or working on their dissertations.  Caroline brainstormed for ideas here and here, while Arnold focused on his experiences teaching test prep to help you maximize your hourly rate and minimize the amount of work you take home with you.

* Caroline examined what academics can learn from marketers and what hamster worlders can learn from university administrators.

* Arnold found out who were 2007’s most cited scholars, who might also happen to be winners/losers in the “Bad Writing Contest”.
