In PhD [alternative] Career Clinic, Jane Y. Chin describes the realities of an academic “business” enterprise and how PhD graduates may know more about the business world than they realize. She offers practical advice on building mental toughness required of PhDs competing in an unforgiving job market and how PhDs can grow a social network that delivers value and results. PhD [alternative] Career Clinic reveals what employers really mean when they say that a PhD applicant is “overqualified”, and how PhDs can gain transferable experience no matter where they are in their careers.
This concise guide gives PhDs an insider’s look to employers’ thinking process and field-tested advice to help PhDs improve their odds of success when competing for careers outside academia.
