How To... is a series intended to assist junior scholars dealing with the many issues that arise in the course of completing degrees and entering both academic and non-academic job markets. While situations can differ greatly, it is our intention to provide spaces to share collective knowledge and generate conversations around these issues. To this end we draw on our own experiences or those of fellow scholars or practitioners to collaboratively produce tips for generalized situations. In some cases, identities of collaborators may be anonymized because of the sensitive nature of the topic or personal preference.
