Templates and worksheets designed to help you navigate your career with point-by-point instructions on how to complete them are provided. All downloadable blank worksheets are contained on the accompanying CD-ROM. Included are six database program files that can be used to help the reader organize his or her laboratory specific reagents.

In addition to updating the contents of the previous version, this second edition includes a dozen articles written by the authors on managing your career that first appeared in Science's Next Wave.
