That was an important part of keeping my stress down and recharging my batteries. I also did some running and circuit training for exercise. For shorter breaks, I shot nerf basketballs at a tiny hoop mounted in the graphics lab and kept a guitar in my office. Figure out what works for you. You are surrounded by so many other smart, hard working people that it is easy to feel inferior and lose self esteem and confidence.
You got into graduate school because you have already shown to your professors that you have potential and skills that are not typical among most college students, let alone most people -- don't forget that. I freely admit that this section reflects my personal bias that balance in life is important. For some people, focusing on work to the exclusion of almost everything else is how they achieve excellence. However, I chose a different set of priorities and have not regretted that choice.
Decide for yourself what is most important in your life. Real World, The n. Among programmers, discussing someone in residence there is not unlike talking about a deceased person. Do not settle in to your graduate department like a little hamster burrowing in the wood shavings. Stay alert with your eye always poised for the next opportunity, whatever it is: to present a paper, attend a conference, meet a scholar in your field, forge a connection, gain a professional skill.
Ideally, the job hunt begins years before you graduate. Networking is very important: while you are in the middle to late phases of your graduate studies, try to get yourself noticed by professors and industry people at other sites. One way to do this is to offer to give a talk about your work at another site.
This is not that difficult to do, since most research places love to host seminars and bring in fresh ideas. Attending conferences and working elsewhere during the summer are other ways to get exposure. Make friends with graduate students and personnel at other schools. Make and carry your own business cards. Schmooze with important visitors during major site visits. That means I was the point of contact for many speakers who visited UNC and that helped me make contacts.
Networking is important because many jobs are found and filled that way. I got my position at HRL partially because I visited there, at my own expense, two years before I even started my job hunt. In most companies, the hiring authority resides with the manager who owns the job position, not with the Human Resources department.
HR can reject a candidate, but they cannot hire a candidate. As a hiring manager, my job is to only talk directly to candidates who are best qualified for the position. As a candidate, your job is to find the individual with the ability to hire and deal with that person directly, rather than solely with the HR department. When do you start asking for interviews? You can start when you are able to give a talk about your dissertation work.
The job hunt and interviewing process can take months; factor that into your time allocation. The job supply and demand situation can vary dramatically in a few years, and anything I say here about the job market today will likely be out of date by the time you read this.
For example, during the time I was initially job hunting end of to early , good positions were not easy to find. However, around the graphics job market became very strong, with many individuals getting multiple offers with high salaries. I know many friends who found good tenure-track positions that year.
So when I revised this guide in , I said the job market was strong with high demand. Of course, the tech industry went downhill at that point. So I no longer say anything about how strong or weak the job market appears to be. For example, my strength was in systems, so I chose to emphasize that in my cover letters.
Customize your approach to each site, if time permits. Try to get at least one reference from outside your university. This guide is not going to cover the basics of interviewing; you can get that from many books e. However, I will mention some tips. Be prepared for hard or illegal questions, by finding polite ways of addressing the underlying concern. Do your homework on each site before interviewing!
It continually amazes me that people show up for interviews without knowing anything about the institution they want to join. If the target is a research lab for a major company, you can easily look up Wall St. Journal articles, annual reports and stockbroker reports. If you interview at a university, get their course catalog and use their numbering scheme to describe the courses you can teach.
Interview to find out more about them, not just to sell yourself. Your minute research presentation is crucial; make sure you practice it thoroughly. Interviews create interviews. Broadcast this fact by keeping your interview schedule on your web page. There is an anecdote about one student who received offers to interview at many different places, but only after Stanford interviewed him!
Keep logs on who you talk to, what you talked about, and when. That makes it easier to keep things straight when juggling several contenders. The major conferences in your field are a good place to schedule preliminary interviews to get your foot in the door, because it is cheap for the company or university. The people you need to meet are already there, so that saves them the expense of having to fly you out and house you at their site. Offers are a waiting game. Be prepared for lots of frustration.
You need a written offer or nothing is official; you should also accept or reject in writing. Negotiate, but be aware of the strength or weakness of your position. I also recommend doing only one round of negotiating i. As a hiring manager, I can tell you that it is very frustrating when a candidate attempts to negotiate for a long time, and that can make an employer upset and possibly even rescind the offer.
Look at the entire package. Starting salary may not be as important as the type of work, the environment, benefits, growth potential, and work-life balance. Drug tests and other factors are becoming more common; you will have to decide how you want to respond to those.
Ah yes, salaries. Everybody wants to know about those. For academic tenure track salaries, you can get typical numbers from the annual Taulbee surveys , printed in the Computing Research News newsletter and the Communications of the ACM. Realize that these are 9-month salaries. Whether or not you can procure funding to cover 2 or 3 months of summer salary makes a big difference to your bottom line.
Also, professors can make money by consulting, although this is more common among established professors. Figures for industrial salaries are harder to come by. The Maisel and Gaddy references are the only ones I have found that specifically survey young Ph. Salaries depend heavily on geography. For example, salaries in the Silicon Valley and San Francisco are high. But before you decide to move to Palo Alto, remember that the cost of living there is also in the stratosphere.
When I first wrote this guide in , nice houses in the Silicon Valley in good areas cost more than half a million dollars. As a hiring manager, I will caution you against believing self-reported figures from sites such as Glassdoor. My experience is that those are not accurate and generally exaggerate salary figures. They also often confuse base salaries with total compensation that includes bonuses, stock and other benefits.
Acquire salary information on your own by making use of your network. Instead, bounce figures off people and see how they respond. Do they think the figure you mention is high, low, or about right? By seeing how people respond you can get an idea of what the market range is.
Factor in benefits and the expected workload into your compensation evaluation. An offer with high compensation may seem less attractive if you have to work 80 hour weeks in that position. You may have to do some detective work to determine the truth.
A company might say they value work-life balance, while the established culture tells you a different story: where people have to work 80 hour weeks to get promoted or to even keep up with expectations and deadlines. For many positions, particularly in Silicon Valley, variable compensation cash bonuses, restricted stock units and stock options make up a significant part of the total compensation, along with benefits.
Startups: Joining a startup, or starting your own company, is potentially the most lucrative route. It is also the riskiest. Most startups fail. Overall, the home runs are few, but they do occur. For example, I know some people who joined Oculus prior to it being acquired by Facebook. Startups are a very different work environment than established big companies.
They are typically small, informal, agile, and lacking in resources. They may be more flexible in work environment than most Fortune companies. But they are also less likely to have knowledgable HR personnel who ensure that laws are followed. A paycheck from a Fortune company is not likely to bounce. Startups tend to fire quickly and are more likely to shut down.
A startup has a limited amount of time and resources to establish itself so that it can become self sustaining or an acquisition target. That means it is not a place to pursue long-term research, no matter what the founders may say. The best analogy I heard: Joining a startup is like deciding to jump off a tall cliff with a bunch of other people, believing that you will successfully build working sets of wings and will soar away prior to hitting the ground.
You might also check the base of the cliff beforehand to see how many bodies you find there. Startups are not generally compatible with work-life balance. Due to the limited resources, startups have to demand more sacrifices than a more established company. By working in a startup, you will likely fall out of touch with the research community in your field and lose the state-of-the-art knowledge that you worked so hard to acquire by getting a Ph.
It is easier to go from a research background to a startup or commercial position than it is to go the other direction. Although old, the Kawasaki and Bell references listed at the end of this document may be useful if you want to work at a startup. We both had the same advisor. Unlike me, Matt did not finish his Ph. Instead, he left early to join a startup that had less than people at that time.
You might have heard of this startup. It was called Google. If you win the startup lottery, like Matt, he offers some advice here and here. I also like how Google prepared its employees prior to its IPO. Commercial businesses: Normal development or production jobs that focus on supporting or developing new products represent the vast majority of employment opportunities.
However, getting a Ph. Most people who seek a Ph. However, if your interests lie in business rather than research, this can be the best way to go. There are Ph. Advanced development jobs can be interesting and challenging, and they provide the satisfaction of seeing your work impact product or a company. Industrial or government research labs: These sit somewhere in between normal commercial jobs and academia.
Typically they enable you to look somewhat longer term than a normal job, publish papers, go to conferences, etc. However, these are managed environments, so your research work must tie into the business of the company or the mission of the lab. Reorganizations and changes in priorities can commonly occur, and you have to surf those changes to stay employed and viable. The compensation in industrial research can be good, generally much better than government positions or academia. But like commercial jobs or startups, your job can get cut at any time.
I worked at a lab where one day, without any warning, managers appeared and informed us that the company was shutting down our lab and that almost everyone would be laid off, including me. However, even if you focus on doing research that is important to your company, it is possible to achieve external recognition.
In this role, you should be ambitious to accomplish something rather than being ambitious to make yourself famous. Labs that are completely owned by commercial companies or ones that have mandated government funding generally have a consistent stream of funding until executives or politicians decide to change things. Other labs must rely on winning contracts, from other companies or from the government. That can be a volatile, frustrating way to work.
Academia: Working in universities is the traditional career path for Ph. A tenured professor is the most secure and stable research position that exists, and the one that grants the most freedom. Professors can choose what they want to work on. If you are focused on publishing and want to ensure that nobody can tell you what to do, then become a tenured professor.
If your main motivation is to become a very famous researcher, then become a tenured professor. However, tenure is not easy to achieve. Getting a tenure-track position is difficult. You have to be good and possibly lucky to get one. As I previously mentioned, postdoc experience is becoming an almost mandatory prerequisite. Read the Feibelman and Ralston references for tips on surviving a postdoc.
Furthermore, getting tenure is a race against the clock to publish enough impressive research results that your department decides to grant tenure rather than sending you out the door. As Randy Pausch put it, tenure is a competitive process where you get compared with the other assistant professors and the already-tenured professors. The tenure track is not kind to those who want to start a family. The realities of the biological clock tend to conflict with the demands required to achieve tenure.
Professor jobs tend to be focused either on research or teaching. Smaller colleges and universities tend to focus mostly on teaching, and professors are evaluated that way. Teaching positions generally pay less than the research positions at big universities, where professors are primarily evaluated by their research and how many trees they kill by publishing papers, and if their teaching is good enough to keep the dean from hearing complaints.
These lack the security of tenure and it can be difficult to stay alive on such funding. The comments I made about fundraising in industrial or government research labs also apply to academic positions. Most of my friends who are professors in the US have to spend far too much time writing proposals, and the percentage of those that are awarded seems to keep going down.
If you are tenured, then your job does not rely upon winning proposals, but without external money, you will not be able to support graduate students or pay for extra staff, and your impact will therefore be limited. If you want to get a tenure-track position, read The Professor Is In , a book that goes into great detail about how to land a tenure-track job.
The author also runs a blog and service to help students seeking to become professors. Keep in mind that the author has a background in the humanities, so if you are a CS Ph. For example, CS Ph. In CS, publications at certain conferences are valuable, whereas in the humanities, conference publications may not count for much.
Other tips: When I had to look for a job in , the single thing I did that was most helpful to my job hunt was creating my own website. My website serves as a visual version of a C. This is a much more compelling way of communicating who I am and what I can offer.
As a hiring manager, I found it very helpful when candidates had good websites about themselves. LinkedIn is sufficient for many job hunters, but for people with a Ph. The article The Secret Formula for Choosing the Right Next Role ACM digital library access required suggests that when choosing jobs, focus more on what skills you will acquire, what you can accomplish there and who you will work with, rather than focusing on your job title, paycheck and initial project.
No matter where you go after you graduate, maintain your contacts with your alma mater. You may change jobs and move from place to place, but you will always have your degree from your university. If you keep good relations with your university and your fellow former students, that will serve as an excellent base for your personal network. Collins and Jerry I.

Some people believe that [law can change human behaviour] , while others hold the view that [law cannot change human behaviour]. In my opinion, [the law can change human behaviour] due to several reasons.

My strength lies solely in my tenacity. Patterson, published in the Fall issue of The Bent: I first learned of the capricious, human side of organizations some 15 years ago while studying the careers of engineers and scientists. I did not plan any of this. Luck definitely was a factor. But the key points are: I did something that got myself noticed in a positive way by top professors in my field.
Because I showed potential, they decided to take a chance on me by providing opportunities. And most importantly, I did the work to exploit these opportunities.

Make it clear where we are going and what we have already covered. Make the text in your slides large enough so that people sitting in the back can read them. For large presentation halls, this usually means no more than lines per slide and 28 point type minimum. Variety retains interest. Vary your pace, tone, and volume. Emphasize the important points. Look around the room. Throw in some video, pictures, or live examples.

Always check in early and test the equipment. Tell them what you are going to do in your presentation e. Make sure you know how everything works long before you come up to the podium.

Instead, I will describe two consistent but unfortunate trends I have observed since graduating: Tenure-track positions are increasingly requiring candidates to do one or more postdocs: This trend has been documented by Anita Jones in the article The Explosive Growth of Postdocs in Computer Science ACM Digital Library subscription required. Since , hiring of Ph. The requirements for a tenure-track position appear to have been redefined to make one or more postdocs nearly mandatory.
This has been the case in other disciplines for a long time, but it is relatively new for Computer Science. This delays a Ph. Industrial research positions have become difficult to find: Overall, most businesses focus on the short term. Therefore, the trend has been to cut back or close industrial research labs.
Big companies increasingly rely on letting startups attempt certain kinds of innovation and then partnering with or acquiring those. Companies also pursue innovation through advanced development groups that are different than traditional research labs.

Some of these are frictional costs: It costs more to administer contract employees than it does to use in-house staffers, for example.
There are also risk-based costs. That is, there may be a greater risk of deliberate contractual abuse, for profit, by an Once a contract has begun, there are frequently few alternatives available to the client but to continue with the vendor that was originally selected. The Risks of Outsourcing Risks associated with outsourcing contracts are principally one of the following three types: 1. Opportunistic repricing or holdup. When a company enters into a long-term contract, it is not uncommon for the vendor to try to change the terms at some point.
What makes these risks possible? In general, each occurs when the vendor sees a profitable opportunity that could not have been predicted or prevented by the terms of the contract. Second, there must be some form of uncertainty; shirking is a poor strategy if it can be detected and punished.
Unfortunately, the difficulty and expense of careful monitoring mean that detection with certainty is rarely possible. And, as is the case with shirking, poaching occurs when there is uncertainty in detection or precontractual uncertainty as to what actions might be possible and attractive for the vendor later on. There must also be some change in power that enables the vendor to demand and win this increase in payment.
This often occurs by way of a phenomenon called postcontractual small numbers bargaining: Once a contract has begun, there are frequently few alternatives available to the client but to continue with the vendor that was originally selected. This lack of alternatives can occur for any of several reasons. The client may have made a sunk cost investment of some form, for example, such as buying hardware with limited resale or salvage value that works effectively only with software provided by the vendor.
Managing the Risks When you outsource application development, any and all of the above risks are possible. Fortunately, there are a few simple guidelines that can substantially improve your chances of success: 1. Understand the project.

Using a third-party information processor to manage client relationships can allow another party to have access to your customer history and pick off your best accounts. Divide and conquer. Dividing a large project into smaller, more manageable pieces will greatly reduce programmatic risk. In principle, completion of each independent chunk creates the possibility that subsequent development work will be handed off to a different developer.
Each chunk should have specific objectives and quality metrics, and each piece should be independent, in the sense that companies would have to absorb only tolerable increases in development costs should they choose to switch vendors after one or more chunks has been completed. Moreover, by assessing checkpoints at the completion of each chunk, the company can detect quality problems and reduce the risk of shirking or underperformance.
Align incentives. What you want to do is pay for incremental sales. It is difficult to define incremental sales or determine the basis of compensation for your call center operators.

India has only 4. But Indians do own 80 million TVs. With 37 million cable TV installations, India ranks No. The problem, of course, is infrastructure. This is how businesses manage change— a dynamic network, a limitless network ot business connections, all powered by the ebusiness platform from Vitria.
Private businesses were recently allowed to operate gateways but will rely on VSNL for bandwidth until new stations are in place. Privacy seems of no concern. Ragged dogs, some with deep gaping sores, slumber inches from traffic. Women scrub laundry on cement; barbers squat on their haunches before customers, dipping razors into cups of soapy dark water.
There is a wondrous sociability about the whole enterprise. According to The World Bank, India has the highest concentration of poverty of any country, with more than a third of its one billion population living below the official poverty line. India also leads the world in population growth at 16 million people each year. Bias against women and girls is reflected in the demographic ratio of females for every 1, males.

Absolutely Brilliant. Indian villagers are also using the Internet to register complaints. In Hyderabad you saw riots over the power reforms. But in IT there has been no resistance because everyone feels this is the future for India. Today the son or daughter of a small clerk in an office or even a farmer who is minimally exposed to what is happening around the world would like to have computer education, would like to be part of this revolution.
A nation moves when all the people desire movement. It has become a part of our aspiration. Is the IT revolution passing them by? Not entirely. Increasingly, villagers are finding ways to improve their lives with the Internet. Indian farmers use the Internet through low-cost public kiosks to check market prices and make decisions on where to haul and sell their produce.
Farmers in some 20 villages in Madya Pradesh use e-mail to order fertilizer, contact officials IT is one sector where the entire country has somehow united in desiring progress.

The Hindu holy book, the Bhagavad Gita, occupies a corner of the desk. According to Mehta, a third of Silicon Valley startups last year were created by people of Indian origin. However, Mehta sees more to IT than the minting of new billionaires—he believes that IT can help the poor and eradicate illiteracy in India.
Yet more than half of Indian women are illiterate; about 40 million primary school-age children are not in school. Child labor is a continuing problem, as is widespread teacher absenteeism. But Mehta does not skimp on ideas. He recently negotiated a joint venture between MIT and the Indian government— Media Lab India Project—that will work as a development center for regional language software and low-cost technology projects, with Microsoft, Infosys Technologies and Wipro the latter two are both Indian-based companies providing technical assistance.

Such was the price Indians paid for trying to do business with the world—and vice versa. But times have changed. Import duties were slashed today the Indian customer pays no duties on imported software , and licensing processes were streamlined to actually encourage foreign companies to do business in India.
In , the Indian rupee became a convertible currency. Since then, even some long-protected industries such as power generation and telecommunications have at least begun to be deregulated and privatized. Today, India is awash in foreign investment. Literally scores of U. Yet balancing these opportunities, several significant challenges remain for foreign companies wanting to do business in India.
These are just two of the obvious issues. Clearly, whether selling goods, setting up a satellite office, transplanting employees or hiring native workers, foreign business leaders encounter a daunting series of political, economic and cultural hurdles that can impede—if not halt— operations. Any profits made by a foreign company in India must therefore be funneled back into the Indian-based enterprise. This might seem elementary, but the Indian government is quite explicit that it will not subsidize foreign companies doing business in India.
Even visiting businesspeople are forced to produce documentation that then- parent companies will assume their expenses while in India. So eager is India to grow its IT industry that the central government and individual states have created lucrative incentive packages to lure big businesses to set up shop there. Located in such far-flung cities as Calcutta, Kanpur and Pune, these STPs combine Indian- and foreign-owned software companies in regulated developments that include reliable infrastructure, duty-free zones and special income tax breaks for member companies.
At the state level, in Karnataka, home state of Bangalore which bills itself as the Silicon Valley of India , new not just foreign companies that employ a minimum of native IT workers are eligible for discounted or even free land for building office space. They also qualify for scalable breaks in registrations charges, zoning regulations and tariffs. Hyderabad also has given telecom companies free rights of way to lay fiber-optic cables throughout the state.
Says J. And see www. No arguments dissuaded customs officials, and ultimately the items were abandoned. To get around infrastructure issues, most major Indian companies have installed backup generators and either leased private phone lines from the central government or invested in satellite communications links.

Once in India, domestic air travel is every bit as reliable or not as what we deal with in the United States or United Kingdom. Armed guards are everywhere in and outside the terminals, checked and carry-on bags are examined at least twice, and passengers generally are frisked before being allowed even into the departure lounges.

Do not let your employees drive in India. The streets are way too congested I with cars, trucks, motorbikes, bicycles, pedestrians and livestock, plus the local driving customs lots of horns, Do not drive in India. The streets are already too congested, plus the local driving customs are puzzling to most foreigners. When first arriving in India, call ahead to your hotel and arrange for a pickup a driver will show up outside the terminal, holding a sign with your name on it , or go directly to the prepaid taxi booth inside the terminal and pay a set fee tip included.
Do not just leave the terminal and expect to hail a passing cab. Once settled in, rent a driver, not a car. The sheer volume of pollution, people and poverty would be sensory overload for many foreigners on extended stays in India. These days, with ubiquitous e-mail and viable videoconferencing, companies are advised to hire locally and manage remotely.

Not only was the couple exiled, but their families were excommunicated as well. While more a part of everyday life in the villages, castes still play significant roles in the cities—and in business. City streets are lined with lower-caste women who sweep the dusty roads with flimsy hand brooms.
And frankly, the recent influx of IT wealth has only widened this gulf in favor of those Indians who are fortunate enough to work in the IT sector. Some observers are optimistic that IT dollars will have a trickle-down effect and improve the standard of living for all Indians. Others foresee only greater disparity and displays of social unrest.
Just this past August, the city of Bangalore was shut down for two days by rioters upset by the kidnapping of local film star Rajkumar. Kailas- nathan, vice president of IT at Titan Industries, a Bangalore-based watchmaker, feels the riots were less about the kidnapping and more about the growing frustration of the have-nots in the Silicon Valley of India.

And those contrasts are nowhere more stark than between the poverty that tarnishes its rural and urban landscape and the promise that defines its global IT industry. Since it is widely known that IT careers pay much better than virtually any other profession, IT is where many of them set their hopes. If they have what it takes and aspire to earn big money, they basically have two choices: medicine or IT. Until recently, those who opted for IT had few options. These state-run schools graduate 2, IT engineers per year.
Recently, the rules have changed. Since the Indian IT industry took off in the mid- s, the central and state government have loosened their grip on education. Even the prestigious IITs have difficulty recruiting and retaining qualified teachers from the private industry. Of those 2, who gain admission, just 5 percent are women and only As a result, the odds Indian students face in IT are better than in most other professional opportunities.
Pity the Children For most Indian students, the winnowing process begins at age 4. Youngsters generally attend school six days a week, enjoy far fewer days off than their U. Even in the poorest Indian villages, education is embraced as the one accessible mean to greater wealth, so the pressure to succeed is great. There are six of them—the oldest at Kharagpur was established in , while the youngest at Guwahati is only 6 years The demand for an IT education is growing faster than India's schools can supply faculty and classrooms.
Chartered by the federal government and funded by a combination of public and private endowments, the IITs are hell on prospective entrants, but heaven for those lucky few who gain entry. An IIT degree is such a ticket to success in the new, global IT industry that India frequently trots out the boast unsupported by any evidence that the IITs produce more millionaires per capita than any university in the world.
Ten hours of pretesting per week—that was the regimen. Today, applicants take a multiple choice exam of three hours, followed by three two-hour essay exams over a two-day period. More than , students take the exam each year, but only 2, gain entry into one of the IITs. And ranking absolutely counts. Sanghi was one of the lucky ones. Not only did he pass, but he was selected to attend IIT-Madras at Chennai, the most respected of the schools. Graduating after four years in , Sanghi went to the Indian Institute of Management at Ahmedabad for a post-graduate degree in management.

Suddenly, this whole eBusiness thing just clicks.
The pressure is on to boost enrollment and create new software engineers to fill new jobs. And so now the IITs, which have cherished their exclusivity, are under increasing pressure from the central government to open their doors while maintaining high standards. Natarajan, director of the IIT-Madras. And while many expats such as Sanghi have recently returned to India to head Internet startups, some observers question whether they will stay if and when the dotcom boom goes bust.
The other big challenge is growth. The Madras school has been asked by the central government to triple enrollment over the next 10 years. Of the , who take the ITT entrance exam each year, probably 20, could qualify for admission, Natarajan says.

The story is the same in Hyderabad, which would like to grow its enrollment to 1, students—if it can hire enough teachers. One hope of the Triple ITs is that, through the private sector partnerships, they can find new ways for students to stay in India rather than emigrate to the United States or United Kingdom.
