Graduate schools churn out tens of thousands of PhDs and MAs every year. Yet more than half of all college courses are taught by adjunct faculty, which means that the chances of an academic landing a tenure-track job seem only to shrink as student loan and credit card debts grow. What’s a frustrated would-be scholar to do? Can she really leave academia? Can a job outside the academy really be rewarding? And could anyone want to hire a grad-school refugee?

In this third edition of “So What Are You Going to Do with That?”, thoroughly revised with new advice for students in the sciences, Susan Basalla and Maggie Debelius—PhDs themselves—answer all those questions with a resounding “Yes!” A witty, accessible guide full of concrete advice for anyone contemplating the jump from scholarship to the outside world, “So What Are You Going to Do with That?” covers topics ranging from career counseling to interview etiquette to how to translate skills learned in the academy into terms an employer can understand and appreciate. Packed with examples and stories from real people who have successfully made this daunting—but potentially rewarding—transition, and written with a deep understanding of both the joys and difficulties of the academic life, this fully updated guide will be indispensable for any graduate student or professor who has ever glanced at his or her CV, flipped through the want ads, and wondered, “What if?”

Review:
"A smart, insightful, supportive, straightforward, and engaging guide for anyone facing the prospect of change, career or otherwise. "'So What Are You Going to Do with That?'" is one of the most important resources that I have, and I use it daily. This time, Basalla and Debelius dare to shed light on the science career myth that a career in academic science research is a panacea. The disconnect between a PhD student's career intentions and the reality of the academic market behooves all science students to read this book and get involved more deeply in their career development and pathway options. I wish I had written it!"--Victoria A. Blodgett "assistant dean, Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs, Graduate School, University of Connecticut "

"'"So What Are You Going to Do with That?"' is a life-changer for doctoral graduates and a godsend for the Republic. Basalla and Debulius show us how to engage the superb and transferable abilities of PhDs."--Robert Weisbuch, former president, Drew University

"I will absolutely be recommending this book to our graduate students exploring their career options--I'd love to see it on the coffee tables in department lounges!"--Robin B. Wagner, former associate director of graduate career services, University of Chicago

""The" reference tool for MAs and PhDs considering nonacademic career paths. The guide is comprehensive, hands-on, and much needed."--Elaine Showalter, professor emerita, Princeton University

I will absolutely be recommending this book to our graduate students exploring their career options I d love to see it on the coffee tables in department lounges! --Robin B. Wagner, former associate director of graduate career services, University of Chicago"

This third edition . . . is especially timely. Graduate students and current academicians are struggling, rather publicly, with the realization that a career in academics is no longer desired. . . . Basalla and Debelius have written a supportive, resourceful, and well-structured guide for the possibly long and windy journey ahead. . . . This is just the resource to help those in transition find more rewarding work that values and benefits from the academic experience. --Africa S. Hands, author of Successfully Serving the College Bound "San Francisco Book Review ""

This is a book I wish I had written, because everything the authors advise is exactly the counsel that I give PhDs questioning, Why did I do all this research if I can t get an academic job? I find this book especially helpful for anyone just beginning to think about what a big deal it is to leave academe and those who are suffering PhD identity crisis. (Remember, your degree is a credential it doesn t define your capabilities!). --Natalie Lundsteen, director of career development, Graduate School for Biomedical Sciences at UT Southwestern Medical Center "Inside Higher Ed ""
