Críticas:

"What if, while one is ensconced in a six-year art history doctoral program, the idea of a career in academia loses its luster? Susan Basalla and Maggie Debelius have been there.... In "So What Are You Going to Do with That?" they use wit, directness, and great anecdotal evidence to guide readers through the soul-searching decision to leave academia." - Publishers Weekly "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 for graduate services, University of Chicago"

Reseña del editor:

Graduate schools churn out tens of thousands of PhD's and MA's every year. Half of all college courses are taught by adjunct faculty. The chances of an academic landing a tenure-track job seem to shrink by the day. What's a frustrated would-be scholar to do? Can he or she really leave academia? Can a non-academic job really be rewarding - and will anyone want to hire a grad-school refugee? With "So What Are You Going to Do with That?" Susan Basalla and Maggie Debelius - PhD's 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 translating 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 revised and up-to-date edition will be indispensable for any graduate student or professor who has ever glanced at her CV, flipped through the want ads, and wondered, "What if?"
