About the author

Kevin Barry is founder of Best Practices To Graduate and Plant Foods for Humanity.

Best Practices To Graduate defines five best practices to help college students attend classes and complete study sessions so they can graduate. http://BestPracticesToGraduate.org

Plant Foods for Humanity highlights publications that speak to the human health and environmental benefits of a whole foods, plant-based diet. http://PlantFoodsForHumanity.org

Personal academic background: In college, I graduated after five and a half years with a 2.0 grade point average. After several years out in the work force, I was interested in obtaining my MBA. I knew that my undergraduate GPA was not sufficient to get me into graduate school, so I started taking general courses and spent a great deal of time preparing for the GMAT. During this time I began to document decisions that yielded productive study sessions and the reasons behind these results.

Based on this personal experience and my interviews with hundreds of college students over the past 20 years, I have documented the five best practices that are central to consistently attending classes and completing study sessions. These best practices are detailed at http://BestPracticesToGraduate.org. 

How did my academic story end? I went on to Graduate school, earned my degree with a 3.73 GPA, and was selected for membership in Beta Gamma Sigma, the honor society for collegiate schools of business. My hope for you is that you take to heart these five best practices so you can earn your degree and realize your dreams.

The definitive career guide for grad students, adjuncts, post-docs and anyone else eager to get tenure or turn their Ph.D.  into their ideal job
 
Each year tens of thousands of students will, after years of hard work and enormous amounts of money, earn their Ph.D. And each year only a small percentage of them will land a job that justifies and rewards their investment. For every comfortably tenured professor or well-paid former academic, there are countless underpaid and overworked adjuncts, and many more who simply give up in frustration.
 
Those who do make it share an important asset that separates them from the pack: they have a plan. They understand exactly what they need to do to set themselves up for success.  They know what really moves the needle in academic job searches, how to avoid the all-too-common mistakes that sink so many of their peers, and how to decide when to point their Ph.D. toward other, non-academic options.
 
Karen Kelsky has made it her mission to help readers join the select few who get the most out of their Ph.D. As a former tenured professor and department head who oversaw numerous academic job searches, she knows from experience exactly what gets an academic applicant a job. And as the creator of the popular and widely respected advice site The Professor is In, she has helped countless Ph.D.’s turn themselves into stronger applicants and land their dream careers.
 
Now, for the first time ever, Karen has poured all her best advice into a single handy guide that addresses the most important issues facing any Ph.D., including:
 
-When, where, and what to publish
-Writing a foolproof grant application
-Cultivating references and crafting the perfect CV
-Acing the job talk and campus interview
-Avoiding the adjunct trap
-Making the leap to nonacademic work, when the time is right
 
The Professor Is In addresses all of these issues, and many more.
