"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. In their new book, Work Your Career, Loleen Berdahl and Jonathan Malloy take a different approach, encouraging students to consider both career options from the beginning and to prepare for both concurrently. The authors recognize the need for more organized and systematic mentoring and career guidance, and so provide practical advice to Social Science and Humanities students for developing skills useful to both markets. The book's chapters are organized by questions grad students should consider as they progress through their programs. Although this does center the book on the doctoral experience, Berdahl and Malloy aim to help students build a seamless, lifelong approach to career readiness and development."--
