Three Common Mistakes Ph.D.s Make in Their Job Search

Over the past seven years, the Beyond Prof team has interviewed hundreds of Ph.D.s about how to make a successful career transition. Through this research, we’ve learned what makes, and breaks, a non-academic job search.

Join us for this upcoming webinar where you’ll learn the common mistakes we see Ph.D.s make time and time again when starting their job searches. You’ll learn what strategies Ph.D.s used that eventually led to their successful career transition, and how you can apply these strategies to your own job search.

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

  • What are the common mistakes Ph.D.s make when applying for nonacademic jobs?
  • What proven strategies can help me avoid mistakes, and be more successful in my job search?
  • What is the most effective way to spend my time during a nonacademic job search?

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