This guide offers practical advice on successfully finding an academic job.

Sources of information about job opportunities, job application strategies, and the preparation of the curriculum vita and cover letter are discussed. Appendices give sample curriculum vitaes and letters. Chapter 3 covers the job interview and presentation. Chapter 4 gives strategies for landing the right job and tactics for negotiating with prospective employers. Chapter 5 offers advice to dual-career couples and senior academics and discusses nonacademic positions. The last chapter presents checklists of "do's" and "don'ts" of job searching.
