This booklet from AAAS/Science includes steps to help you better prepare for your career in science. This is a must-read for all scientists-in-training.

From the article: "A lot of what's written about science careers focuses on the career options available to individuals or how to apply for jobs when you're ready to go on the market. The reality, of course, is that we should be thinking about our career long before that point. This booklet looks at the steps you can take throughout your training to better prepare for your career. Whether you're considering which internship opportunity to pursue, what sort of graduate school experience you might be interested in, or what to expect in your postdoc position, there's information in this booklet for you."
