Doctoral students should take advantage of academic conferences to develop deeper networking relationships with colleagues and professionals in their field, Bristol University Ph.D. student Rachel Harris writes in this blog post. Keep a list of contacts made during a conference and be sure to follow up with them through e-mail or social media to keep the connection fresh in their minds, Harris advises.

Professors new to the tenure track should seek out colleagues to be their "service mentor" to offer guidance regarding nonteaching requests they may face, writes Kerry Ann Rockquemore, president of the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity. "You don't want to be making these decisions on your own when you do not yet know the norms and expectations on your new campus," she advises.

Only 60% of 2014 law school graduates had full-time jobs in the legal field 10 months after graduating, and that statistic may even be misleading, Steven Harper writes. The imbalance between students and available jobs may be because many law schools have a financial incentive to increase enrollment, as 25% of these institutions get 88% or more of their revenue from tuition, Harper writes. The American Bar Association should take steps to address the problem, he adds.
