Guide to Nontraditional Careers in Science
Environmental-scientist-turned-science-writer, Karen Kreeger, taps the experiences of nearly 100 scientists to provide case studies and career options for scientists in her Guide to Non-Traditional Careers in Science . The handbook is organized by profession and includes one-on-one interviews, job-hunting advice, and comprehensive lists of resources, from people to societies, Web sites to training programs.
While many jobs undoubtedly require additional qualifications outside of a specialized degree, the book explains that scientists do not necessarily need to obtain a JD, MBA, or MD in addition to a PhD to find a fulfilling career. The author goes further into the subject by detailing the situations of those with BA/BS, Master, JD, and MD degrees.
The guide approaches the practical realities of delving into non-traditional employment. More than required reading for freshly-minted degree holders, this book is a must for faculty members and advisors.
