Although most students reported receiving career advice, most of the advice was directed to academic employment, and other career goals were sometimes disparaged. Career goals seemed to change little over the course of doctoral study, with teaching and research predominant. Students wanted more preparation specifically aimed at interviewing for faculty jobs and for research project management, writing for publication, and grant writing. In addition to location and salary, respondents rated the opportunity to work for social change highly as a factor that would influence them in job choice after degree completion. Students wanted to know more about the “trade secrets” of teaching, research, writing, and the academic world and wanted more attention to the intangibles involved in changing identities from student to scholar or teacher.
