Alternative Careers for Ph.D.'s in the Humanities. A Selected Bibliography.
Donaldson, Christine F.; Flynn, Elizabeth A.
A bibliography for Ph.D.'s in the humanities who are seeking employment outside the discipline in which they are trained is presented. The materials, which were primarily published within the past 7 years, include books, articles, pamphlets, directories, and periodicals. The first section contains listings of materials related to the job hunt: self-assessment, job-search strategies, resumes and cover letters, interviews, salary, general occupational literature, job search for women, job search in the humanities, and the job market for Ph.D.'s. The second section consists of materials related to a wide range of occupations, from those closely aligned with humanistic disciplines to those that would require retraining. The following occupations are covered: publishing, communications, research and consulting, nonprofit organizations, international careers, libraries, museums, archives, government, academic administration, technical writing, foreign language careers, business, computer science, personnel, public relations, accounting, and law. The following business specialties are also included: banking and finance, corporate business, small business, management, marketing, real estate and insurance, and travel. A list of useful addresses is appended. (SW)
