Provides that all graduate students are to receive appropriate advising throughout their degree programs. Effective academic advising is a critical component of a successful graduate degree program. At Stanford, all matriculated graduate students are to be advised by a member of the faculty. The nature of academic advising may differ for different programs and at different stages in a degree program. By the start of their first term of graduate study, students should select or be paired by the department with faculty advisors who assist them in planning a program of study to meet degree requirements. The process for the selection or assignment of advisors for incoming students, sometimes referred to as program advisors, academic advisors, or first-year advisors, varies and should be explained in writing to incoming students.
Jane Li, 20, Apache Junction, Arizona. The past year has been a whirlwind for most of us in the tech industry, and I found myself needing help. I bought a cheap resume service online, and sent it out, only to get 0 responses. A friend told me about Knock Em Deads book, to which I found helpful but that I was in over my head. I then worked with Martin on a new resume, followed by a bunch of other things I didnt know I needed. About a week later I had my first interview, and 2 weeks later landed a dream job. Or career, as Martin would say. Thanks for everything Martin and best of luck with that bass guitar

The Academic Process
Discuss with your master project advisor at the beginning to decide whether your master project will be more suited for the project or thesis option. You will find your faculty advisor knowledgeable and willing to offer excellent suggestions and advice regarding an appropriate thesis topic. Give considerable thought to the identification and planning of a thesis topic. Review literature related to your interests; read a variety of research papers, abstracts, and proposals for content, methods and structure.
The advising relationship is, at its core, a communication relationship. Some advisors will be better than others about exploring ideas with you, sharing writing strategies and offering other forms of assistance as you research and write your dissertation. By using good communication skills yourself, you can help your advisor be the best advisor for you; someone who will allow you to complete your dissertation and flourish as a professional.
