Career transition guidance for advanced degree holders
Your PhD commands more value beyond academia
The academic market is dire for the humanities and social sciences. Even those on the tenure track face wage stagnation.
Universities justify low pay for instructors and professors in large part because too many of us don't know our value beyond academia.
I've helped numerous academics escape and find jobs at companies such as Deloitte, PwC, Salesforce, and Google.
A doctorate distinguishes you – As PhD holders, we already have deep knowledge and competences. The challenge is to adapt our academic profile to terms understood by hiring managers.
My services include:
Industry exploration – Identify a career path suited to your interests.
Résumé development – Transform your CV.
Mock interview – Anticipate hiring managers' questions.
Portfolio cultivation – Make employers know about your work.
Negotiation strategy – Don't leave money on the table.
