The definitive career guide for grad students, adjuncts, post-docs and anyone else eager to get tenure or turn their Ph.D.  into their ideal job
 
Each year tens of thousands of students will, after years of hard work and enormous amounts of money, earn their Ph.D. And each year only a small percentage of them will land a job that justifies and rewards their investment. For every comfortably tenured professor or well-paid former academic, there are countless underpaid and overworked adjuncts, and many more who simply surrender in frustration.
 
Those who do make it share the most important asset that separates them from the pack: they have a plan. They take note exactly what they want to do to set themselves up for success.  They know what truly moves the needle in academic job searches, how to avoid the all-too-common mistakes that sink such a lot of of their peers, and how to come to a decision when to point their Ph.D. toward other, non-academic options.
 
Karen Kelsky has made it her mission to help readers sign up for the select few who get the most out of their Ph.D. As a former tenured professor and department head who oversaw a lot of academic job searches, she knows from experience exactly what gets an academic applicant a job. And as the writer of the popular and widely respected advice site The Professor is In, she has helped countless Ph.D.’s turn themselves into stronger applicants and land their dream careers.
 
Now, for the first time ever, Karen has poured all her best advice into a single handy guide that addresses a very powerful issues facing any Ph.D., including:
 
-When, where, and what to publish
-Writing a foolproof grant application
-Cultivating references and crafting the perfect CV
-Acing the job talk and campus interview
-Avoiding the adjunct trap
-Making the leap to nonacademic work, when the time is right
 
The Professor Is In addresses all of these issues, and many more.
