Some friendly advice from the breach

The Real Scientist is breathing down my neck because we need to get out of town for something, but I have to get this out in the universe before I forget:

Talk to your advisors. All of them. They are, all of them, a huge asset. You have no idea which of your papers or ideas will be ready in time for the job market and you don’t know which of your advisors will be most open to your ideas.

Schedule a meeting with every one of them right now and meet with them regularly. Do it!
