This qhow-toq book addresses all aspects of a young mathematicians' early career development: How do I get good letters of recommendation? How do I apply for a grant? How do I do research in a small department that has no one in my field? How do I do anything meaningful if all I can get is a series of one-year jobs? These articles paint a broad portrait of current professional development issues of interest from the Young Mathematician's Network-from finding jobs to organizing special sessions. There are chapters on applying for positions, working in industry and in academia, starting and publishing research, writing grant proposals, applying for tenure, and becoming involved in the academic community.
