Overview

The Academic Job Search Handbook provides specific advice on all aspects of job-seeking in an increasingly tight academic market, from the appropriate timetable for the application process, to illegal or odd interview questions, to negotiating offers, starting a new job, seeking tenure, and everything in between. New information in the third edition includes more examples and advice for candidates in scientific and technical fields, as well as more references for those applying for adjunct positions and to community colleges. A new chapter and some of the all-new sample written materials reflect the reality that many new Ph.D.s are considering career options outside academia. The sample materials also include more examples of the "teaching philosophies" now commonly asked for in job ads. This edition offers expanded information on internet search methods and more examples of useful websites.

An examination of organizational dynamics as they are affected by internal creative processes, using the example of a regional state university campus, which dynamics the authors believe are applicable to other public institutions or possibly organizations of any kind. Emphasis is on the utilization of planning and implementation skills already present within the organization, and the means of activating such resources. The authors are experienced academics and university administrators. A practical and comprehensive overview of the process involved in searching for and obtaining an academic position, based on the authors' experience advising graduate students at the Career Planning and Placement Service, U. of Pennsylvania.
