Even graduate students who have teaching experience find the transition to a faculty position challenging. Assistant professors must juggle research, teaching, and service, and each of these can comprise a career in itself. InsideHigherEd's Daniel S. Hamermesh provides some helpful advice for new junior faculty, such as: publish quickly, stagger your projects, and avoid over preparing for class. This is good basic advice.
