Enrolments in Canadian PhD programs are on the rise, but without a matched increase in available tenure-track positions. Despite the reality that many grad students will end up working outside of the academy, traditional guidance treats this path as a back-up only to be considered when the academic track fails.Work Your Careertakes a different approach, encouraging students to consider both career options from the very beginning and to prepare for both concurrently. Recognizing the need for more organized and systematic mentoring and career guidance, the authors provide practical advice to Canadian social sciences and humanities students for developing skills useful to both markets.The book’s chapters are organized according to the kinds of questions that graduate students should consider as they progress through their programs. Throughout, Berdahl and Malloy aim to help students build a seamless, lifelong approach to career readiness and development.
