**General advice and support for graduate school and beyond**

`Here are two good books (1 and 2) with tips for survival in grad school and beyond.`

`Here is a good article about how to get into math graduate school (despite what it says, if you haven't published, it is OK, although it can help to have research experience to see if you like it!).`

`If you'd like suggestions about mentoring and research development for grad. students and beyond, check here.`

The Math. Association of America has a teaching support program for new college and university profs, Project NEXT.

The Mathematical Research Communities is a research support program for recent Ph.D.'s. It provides summer conferences in a range of fields and then provides longer term mentoring and support. I was involved with the 2009 Inverse Problems conference, and it was a blast!

Some Free and legal math books are** here.**

**Math Careers**

**General information about math careers:**

This cool web site, weusemath.org , from BYU, shows what people use math for and discusses careers.

American Math Society's career info.

MAA Career Information and Career Profiles

Society for Industrial and Applied Math info about applied math careers

SIAM has a useful brochure on careers outside academia and an in-depth report on the mathematics needed in industry today.

Check out this and this for careers outside of academia.

A neat site at U. Georgia giving info. about math jobs

Here's a good reason to consider a math career if you like math (mathematician is always rated one of the most satisfying careers).

Here is a good Business Week article about non-academic math jobs.

**Tufts Career Center has information about careers, resumes, internships, etc. formation about careers:**

**U****niversity Job Ads for Ph.D.'s:
**American Mathematical Society Job Posting (mathjobs.org)
