In episode 29 of the Graduate Job Podcast I speak with author, blogger, and former tenured professor Karen Kelsky, who shares with us her secrets of how you can turn your PH.D into a job. Now you might be thinking ‘I don’t have a PH.D, this is no use to me’. But you would be very wrong indeed as Karen shares a wealth of insight that PH.D or not will blow you socks off. Amongst other topics we cover why being yourself could be holding you back, why you should think again about stating how passionate you are for a subject, and why the job market is just like dating. Whether your academic experience goes up to a PH.D, or if it ended when you were 16 this is an episode you won’t want to miss! As always, all links we discuss and a full transcript are available in the show notes at www.graduatejobpodcast.com/PHD but without further ado, let’s dive head first into episode 29.
