“I wish I had discovered Beyond the Prof earlier. I’ve had a number of fears about transitioning alt-ac employment after graduation, and BtP offers strategies to deal with those fears. Many of the job search strategies, networking guidance and career directions BtP has introduced to me I likely would not have discovered on my own. The courses and videos are tailored specifically for PhDs, which make the support grounded in awareness of the unique challenges of this transition. Jen and Maren have interviewed dozens of former academics who happily and successfully have forged new career paths. They are expert coaches and leaders. Perhaps the highlight for me is the online hub and community. It gives me a chance to check in—whether it be to define goals, remain accountable to my intentions, or ask for support though an application or a period of disappointment. I’m very grateful for this community and recommend it without hesitation. ” --- Humanities PhD
“I like the ability to bounce ideas around in the Beyond the Prof forums. It helps to see the ways that people who have similar degrees are dealing with the job market. A lot of the career advice out there falls flat for PhD holders - we need slightly different approaches in our career searches. Networking is still ultra important but it helps to think through how we approach informational interviews and present ourselves and our training. ” --- Social Sciences PhD
“It is great to hear so many stories of how all the awesome peeps here with deep & broad & varied experience are navigating the complicated and often confusing landscape of jobs & industries to find places where their experience will be valuable and valued. Also great to be able to ask questions & get advice from such an energetic & helpful community. ” --- STEM PhD
