Product description

Review

"Kelsky offers wide-ranging, valuable advice and an important perspective for job seekers." - Booklist

"Every graduate student in academe should read this book. But also: if you teach graduate students, if you mentor graduate students, if you worry about graduate students, and even if you're thinking about becoming a graduate student, you should read this book too. It's just that indispensable."- Michael Bérubé, Director, Institute for the Arts and Humanities, Penn State University

"Kelsky offers smart, frank, and often witty advice to lead applicants through the complicated process of securing a tenure-track position..this cogent, illuminating book will be indispensable." - Kirkus Reviews

"It's tough out there, but no one understands how academic jobs are landed better than Karen Kelsky. If you are a graduate student, The Professor Is In offers sound, realistic advice, and it may be the most valuable book you ever read if you intend to have an academic career. - William Pannapacker, Professor of English at Hope College and columnist for the Chronicle of Higher Education

"Karen Kelsky levels the playing field, providing practical insider knowledge to demystify the job market and help you improve the odds. - David M. Perry, Columnist, Chronicle of Higher Education, and Director of Undergraduate Research, Dominican University

"Explains in exquisite detail exactly how to land a tenure track job. In her genial yet unabashedly thorough book, Kelsky coaches readers through the critical topics they need to know. I wouldn't want to navigate the inhospitable weirdness of the academic job market without it." - Adam Ruben, author of Surviving Your Stupid, Stupid Decision to Go to Grad School


"Getting a job is about more than being smart; read this book if you want to be prepared, professional, and on your game."-Elizabeth Reis, Professor and Chair, Women's and Gender Studies Department, University of Oregon

"A realistic account of what it takes to turn a Ph.D. into a job when all the jobs seem to be disappearing, The Professor is In offers sobering, impeccable advice from one of the most honest voices in higher education today."--Greg M. Colón Semenza, Author, with Garrett Sullivan, of How to Build a Life in the Humanities: Meditations on the Academic Work-Life Balance

"This is the book I wish I had when I was a grad student. As The Professor Is In, Karen Kelsky delivers generous, savvy advice for academic job seekers. Unflinching, supportive, and honest, there is no other book like it. All Ph.D. students (and their advisors) should have a copy on their shelf." -Carole McGranahan, Associate Professor of Anthropology, University of Colorado
