You're Hired! Now What? is a short, conversationally written handbook describing challenges and specific strategies to get ahead (or at least get by) in an academic setting. New college faculty are well-versed in the scientific skills they'll need for success in research, including design of projects, preparation of manuscripts and grant proposals, and interactions during peer review. Yet typically they receive no training in organization, management, or even basic college structure. This book is an attempt to begin to fill this void, presenting thoughts and advice intended as a starting point for thinking about problems faced by new faculty.
