With the current dearth of tenure-track positions in academia, graduate students are more than ever in need of a guide to the alternative job market. Ph. D.'s take heart! As Susan Basalla and Maggie Debelius convincingly show you, you are more marketable than you might expect. Academics, whether they have completed a doctorate or not, already have the requisite skills to thrive beyond the academy. This comprehensive, practical, and potentially life-changing guide will help you find your way in the postacademic world.
The authors' advice is based on personal experience. Both have gone on to rewarding postacademic careers. They have conducted hundreds of interviews with former graduate students and professors, from every academic specialty. Their stories, combined with a wealth of practical advice, from the creation of a resume to interview etiquette, make this book an inspiring and useful tool.
