More than 70% of today’s job opportunities come through the “hidden job market”: they’re never advertised, assigned to search firms or internal recruiters, or displayed at job fairs. What’s more, as employers cut recruiting costs, the proportion of “hidden” job opportunities is actually growing. And, since most jobseekers know practically nothing about it, those who do understand it have a powerful inside advantage. Now, two career experts reveal the hidden job market, and show how to use it to dramatically improve your chances of landing a job that fits your passions and skills perfectly. Duncan Mathison and best-selling author Martha Finney help you launch a custom, personal job search that avoids competing with thousands of desperate, laid-off job seekers. Learn how to: Use the hidden job market to leap-frog salary levels or even change professions Uncover hidden market opportunities, and your target employers’ unspoken needs and wants Tell your story in two minutes, and make people want to know more Get the interviews that count, and run them like a pro Network without sounding phony, lame or desperate Reframe experiences, passions, and hobbies as “transferrable skills” Build a strategic support team of advisors Identify a “dead-ended” job search, and get it restarted Negotiate compensation for “hidden” jobs.

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.
