A Bibliography of Resources for Recent PhD Graduates: Job Searching, Teaching, Writing and Publishing

The GDR Office of Admissions and Placement has assembled this list of materials in order to provide a variety of perspectives on key professional concerns for recent PhD graduates. We hope to make a selection of them available on reserve in the Rose Memorial Library in the near future. Current students are encouraged to review these materials early in their program to begin preparing for work beyond Drew.
