Last year, Beyond the Professoriate conducted a survey of 3500 PhDs. We learned that the vast majority of PhDs fear that a non-academic job will be less rewarding and intellectually stimulating than being a professor. We know from our research that PhDs are able to forge meaningful and impactful careers in all industries and sectors.

Join L. Maren Wood, PhD in this webinar and learn how you can find a non-academic career where you will thrive, engage in meaningful work, and be connected to people and projects that matter to you.

After attending this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Describe how non-academic careers provide intellectual and rewarding work for PhDs
  • Illustrate how values and motivators can be career hooks
  • Recognize the importance of identifying your Optimal Career Pathway
