      The AMS Committee on Career-Related Issues is pleased to announce
      that a new version of the *career guide* has been updated on the AMS
      Web site. The new version, also by Cynthia Verba, is entitled "For
      Graduate Students in the Fields of Music: A Guide to Professional
      Development," and is intended to respond to the need for professional
      development in two ways: first, it offers information and answers to
      some of the basic questions that students ask about preparing for a
      career in academe ­ including samples of a variety of successful
      application materials; and second, it recognizes that while many of
      the questions and answers concerning professional development are
      common across all fields, others pertaining to fields in music have a
      distinctive cast. Above all, it tries to suggest ways of approaching
      professional issues according to the needs of the individual,
      promoting the idea that one must play an active role in professional
      development.

      Given the current economic situation, and the status of the job
      market, graduate students must now begin engaging in professional
      activities as early as possible ­ learning how to write winning
      fellowship proposals to fund their research, giving professional
      talks and preparing articles for publication, polishing and
      broadening teaching skills, and in general enhancing their
      qualifications for the eventual job search, whether within academe or
      beyond. We hope that members of AMS will find this guide not only
      useful, but essential in building a solid career in musicology.

      for Cynthia Verba's new Career Guide.

      See www.ams-net.org/committees/cri/ for the AMS CRI web site.

      Kindly pass this on to those you think may be interested--we'd like
      this to have wide distribution.

      Many thanks are due to Cynthia Verba for generously providing this
      helpful guide.
