It takes a network

Get the answers and support you need.

These specifically planned gatherings for the local PhD community, allow you to learn from and question your professional peers and top employers, who value your skills and abilities.  Share these opportunities and let others get-in-the-know

Working with a PhD career coach, learn how to effectively leverage and incorporate this first-hand information into a career “plan of action” —allowing you to cut through the application clutter and stand out from the competition. 

 

I was able to sitdown with a key partner in perpetuating the non-traditional in
redefining PhD career preparedness and workforce development in San Diego.

What’s your biggest piece of advice for PhDs making a transition into the workforce?

“Start early in your PhD career, to  make the unknown-known in every  aspect of your career preparation, search   and transition.  Plus, you don’t have to do it alone. Like the professionals that take time out of their busy schedules to help facilitate our [career] bootcamps, there are many more willing to share their experience, provide support, and open doors.”  Read the entire interview.
