Is a career as a professor the right choice for you? If you are a graduate student, how can you clear the hurdles successfully and position yourself for academic employment? What's the best way to prepare for a job interview, and how can you maximize your chances of landing a job that suits you? What happens if you don't receive an offer? How does the tenure process work, and how do faculty members cope with the multiple and conflicting day-to-day demands? With a perpetually tight job market in the traditional academic fields, the road to an academic career for many aspiring scholars will often be a rocky and frustrating one. Where can they turn for good, frank answers to their questions? Here, three distinguished scholars—with more than 75 years of combined experience—talk openly about what's good and what's not so good about academia, as a place to work and a way of life. Written as an informal conversation among colleagues, the book is packed with inside information—about finding a mentor, avoiding pitfalls when writing a dissertation, negotiating the job listings, and much more. The three authors' distinctive opinions and strategies offer the reader multiple perspectives on typical problems. With rare candor and insight, they talk about such tough issues as departmental politics, dual-career marriages, and sexual harassment. Rounding out the discussion are short essays that offer the "inside track" on financing graduate education, publishing the first book, and leaving academia for the corporate world. This helpful guide is for anyone who has ever wondered what the fascinating and challenging world of academia might hold in store. Part I - Becoming a Scholar * Deciding on an Academic Career * Entering Graduate School * The Mentor * Writing a Dissertation * Landing an Academic Job Part II - The Academic Profession * The Life of the Assistant Professor * Teaching and Research * Tenure * Competition in the University System and Outside Offers * The Personal Side of Academic Life

Brené Brown, erfolgreiche Powerfrau, erlebt einen Zusammenbruch, den sie ihr "spirituelles Erwachen" nennt. Sie geht auf Spurensuche in Sachen Perfektionismus: Was treibt uns an, immer besser und effektiver werden zu wollen? Warum schämen wir uns so, wenn wir trotz größter Anstrengungen den an uns gestellten Anforderungen nie gerecht werden? Browns überraschende Erkenntnis: Perfektion entfremdet! Es ist unsere Unvollkommenheit, die uns mit uns selbst und anderen verbindet und das Leben vollkommen macht.

The future looks bleak for today's college graduates: 53 percent of Millennials are jobless or underemployed after graduating college, and 36 percent have moved back in with their parents. College tuition has tripled in the last decade, debt at graduation has risen to a full year's salary, and more graduates are forced to default on their student loans. Meanwhile, college is not preparing students for the modern job market--wages are stagnating, employers aren't hiring, and young people today can expect to change careers five or six times in their lifetime. The old rules for succeeding in college just don't work anymore. "Put College to Work" is the new rule book that shows how to make today's college environment work for you. "Put College to Work" presents a step-by-step plan to use the resources available to you in college (the resources you're already paying for!) to enhance your education with practical experience, make connections with employers, market yourself as a dynamic and creative employee--and land a job before you graduate. "Put College to Work" shows how to identify your strengths, find the right career field and major to pursue, leverage your skills, and create your own opportunities. You'll learn how to network to employers through your university's career center, alumni association, and major donors, plus the industry and research connections of your professors. Written by a Millennial for Millennials, "Put College to Work" is a supremely practical guide to how college really works today that will empower you to take action now to build your education, your career plan, your business contacts, and your job prospects.
