Overview

In today's highly competitive job market a higher degree will not necessarily lead to a career in higher education. Researchers need to know how to enhance their career prospects and how to look further into the wide range of career options open to them elsewhere.
Moving On in Your Career shows researchers what is required to make a continuing career in academic research or lecturing and gives advice on taking alternative career paths. The authors draw on their expertise in careers guidance in higher education to outline the various options in which researchers can use the skills they have developed in university. They advise on sources of advertised and unadvertised vacancies and how to use methods such as speculative applications and the Internet. They also provide practical exercises and ideas on how to enhance essential job-search and self-presentation skills.
With its special focus on the skills acquired through academic research and how to use them to pursue a wide variety of career options, this book will prove invaluable for postgraduate students and researchers, as well as careers advisors responsible for students and researchers.
