Planning your Career....Making the Right Moves

After the little Career App from last week I stumbled upon another useful resource pool.  The Howard Hughes Medical Institute has released a book helping with those things you normally only learn the hard way, by trial and error. And it might just be sometimes too late for that. The one faculty position you so desperatly wanted is gone... Certainly the book is mainly based on the US system, but there is something for everybody. I copied the index to give you a clear overview of what you can expect. The free 250 page book can be downloaded from their website: - It also includes a heap of links to other resource websites which may be of great benefit. Check it out and have a look! I doubt you will regret it.
