THE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVE PRESENTS:

Making the Leap: Key Factors That Get PhDs Hired into Non-Faculty Jobs

Dr. Paula Chambers is  Founder of Versatile PhD, a leading web-based career resource that helps graduate students and new PhDs envision, prepare for and excel in nonacademic careers. 

It’s become commonplace to say that PhDs have many skills that are valued outside the academy. But what gets new PhDs hired into non -academic jobs, really? Drawing from a significant corpus of qualitative data, Dr. Chambers answers that question in this presentation of primary research, revealing key activities that help PhDs develop the skills and knowledge that got them hired.

She concludes with recommendations for how doctoral programs can make small adjustments that will be extremely helpful towards helping PhD students prepare for the full range of employment outcomes.
