What they didn't teach you in graduate school

This article from the Chronicle of Higher Education has some truly useful career tips for junior professors. It is adapted from What They Didn't Teach You in Graduate School: 199 Helpful Hints for Success in Your Academic Career (Stylus Publishing, 2008). Included are tips about topics such as:
  • Departmental politics
  • Where to publish
  • When to serve as an editor
  • Why to change your career or move
I've just ordered the book from Stylus -- I'll let you know what I think.
