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 corporate jobs.
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.
Career translation – We’ll package your research, skillset, and experience into a business lexicon. The result will be a persuasive job profile.
My services include:
Industry exploration – Identify a career path suited to your interests.
Résumé development – Transform your CV.
Interview practice – Anticipate hiring managers' questions.
Portfolio cultivation – Make employers know about your work.
Continuing consults – Reach out regularly with job search questions.
Negotiation strategy – Don't leave money on the table.
