College faculty members need to seek a network of mentors who can help them make connections in their field instead of relying on one guru to guide them, Kerry Ann Rockquemore, president of the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity, advises.

That compares to a 9.6% nonplacement rate for Ph.D. students in the field. The association says the disparity may be because more nongraduates are starting their job searches earlier.
