So What Are You Going to Do with That?: Finding Careers Outside Academia

Susan Basalla

2ndPublisher: University of Chicago PressFormat: Paperback

Graduate schools churn out tens of thousands of Ph.D.'s and M.A.'s every year. Half of all college courses are taught by adjunct faculty. The chances of an academic landing a tenure-track job seem only to shrink as student loan and credit card debts grow. What's a frustrated would-be scholar to do? Can he really leave academia? Can a non-academic job really be rewarding—and will anyone want to hire a grad-school refugee?With ""So What Are You Going to Do with That?"" Susan Basalla and Maggie Debelius—Ph.D.'s themselves—answer all those questions with a resounding “Yes ” A witty, accessible guide full of concrete advice for anyone contemplating the jump from scholarship to the outside world, ""So What Are You Going to Do with That?“ ”covers topics ranging from career counseling to interview etiquette to translating skills learned in the academy into terms an employer can understand and appreciate. Packed with examples and stories from real people who have successfully made this daunting—but potentially rewarding— transition, and written with a deep understanding of both the joys and difficulties of the academic life, this fully revised and up-to-date edition will be indispensable for any graduate student or professor who has ever glanced at her CV, flipped through the want ads, and wondered, "What if?“”I will absolutely be recommending this book to our graduate students exploring their career options—I'd love to see it on the coffee tables in department lounges "—Robin B. Wagner, former associate director for graduate career services, University of Chicago
