Contents Introduction: my life app crashed after the latest update -- How I got into this mess -- I'm a doctor : no, not that kind of doctor -- Getting over the fear of "no" -- Is it a dragon or a windmill? -- Chasing chickens (and other shit I didn't think I'd have to do with a PhD) -- The best-laid plans of mice and control groups -- Sticking the landing.
Summary After earning her Ph.D., the author found herself in the company of the 66 percent of doctoral graduates--more than 35,000 a year--who cannot find a full-time, tenure-track teaching job. She retraces the steps that took her from her moment of reckoning (aka "failure") to a new way of seeing and grasping success. Discover how to face a fear of "No"; how to see the bigger picture; how to find your next career, ace an interview, and stick the landing: with every step, the author takes the uncertainty and stress out of reinventing yourself, suggests fresh approaches along new directions, and provides the tools for finding, and making, your own way. -- adapted from
