De-Mystifying the Private Sector: Tips on How to Thrive Outside the Academy (Webinar)

Thursday, November 14, 2019
1:30 pm

Leaving academia for the private sector can be confusing and frustrating for many PhDs. How should you prepare differently for a private sector job? How might employers perceive your PhD? More importantly, how can you use your superb education as an advantage in the search process? Speaker Dr. Angela Murphy turned an English PhD into a successful career at a leading financial technology company; she is now Manager of Strategic Partnerships for MSTS. In this webinar, Angela will de-mystify the job search process by sharing her own experiences and insights on private sector employers, including how to best prepare and leverage your skills to find meaningful work. The webinar is part of the PhD Pathways Webinars offered through VersatilePhD.
