What are resources for graduate students emerging into a collapsed academic job market? What kinds of skills and experiences should scholars in global Asian studies and other fields reliant on heretofore comparatively robust academic hiring adopt from extant programs and peers in other fields? What are the differences in hiring and work cultures outside the US? How should degree-holders prepare themselves for possible immigration and work restrictions in an age of economic austerity? And what are some ways that PhD holders have adapted their careers to shifting personal, intellectual, and economic circumstances?
