Guide to Professional Development for Graduate Students in English, A
Written in response to nationwide calls for more comprehensive and deliberate mentoring of future English faculty and for greater support of students who wish to pursue English-oriented jobs outside of the academy, this guide, the first of its kind, is at once practical and eye-opening.
Providing detailed information about how to develop credentials for both academic and nonacademic careers in teaching, scholarship, administration, service, and editing, the guide offers an indepth look at the field’s many possibilities. On another level, the book addresses the rigors and stresses of graduate school by candidly discussing faculty expectations, student responsibilities, and a variety of “survival strategies.”
Whether you are already enrolled in a graduate program or have just begun to consider program options, this resource can help you identify long-term career goals as well as the skills and abilities needed to meet those goals.
