"This book will serve as a light-hearted but strong life-line to many readers who are for one reason or another steeling themselves to walk away from the ivory tower."
--Jennifer Lee Carrell, Free-lance writer
This book provides concrete advice and support for readers moving from the advanced academic world to the real world. The authors cover all the big issues including skill and interest assessment, writing effective resumes and cover letters, preparing for interviews, and evaluating job offers. Written in a lively, engaging style that from a "been there, done that" perspective, this is exactly the kind of information people need when academia unravels around them.
