Overqualified or Underqualified? How Ph.D.s Can Communicate Their Value to Employers

Ph.D.s are often told by employers that they are overqualified for positions. But they’re also told that they don’t have enough experience. So, which is it?

Join the Beyond Prof team for this webinar on how to breakdown the overqualified vs. underqualified conundrum. Learn concrete strategies for overcoming this obstacle in your job search and how to communicate your value to employers.

This webinar is uniquely designed for doctoral students, Ph.D.s, and postdocs from all academic disciplines who are wondering:

  • How should I describe my skills and experience to nonacademic employers?
  • How do I communicate the value I bring to nonacademic positions?
  • How can I prove I’m a qualified candidate when I do not have direct industry experience?

This webinar is part of the Professional Development Series and is available to students through The Graduate School's subscription to Beyond the Professoriate.
