Overview

This book will be an important resource for both new graduates and mid-career scientists, engineers, and technicians.

Many examples of properly adapted resumes and interview techniques, as well as plenty of practical advice about adaptation to new workplace cultural paradigms, such as team-based management, make this book an invaluable reference for the professional scientist in today's volatile job market.
