Unleash Your PhD was created
for PhDs by PhDs
Produced by a current Post-Doc and a current PhD student, Unleash Your PhD was created with PhDs in mind from inception. We couldn’t find the resources we wanted, so we put together a dream team and created our own. Forget about the generic CV or interview advice. Let’s focus on what PhDs need to take the leap from academia into the vast world beyond.
Learn about careers beyond academia
Figure out how your skills translate to non-academic jobs
Open up your mind to possibilities
UNLEASH YOUR PHD is about just that:
In 5 days we will help you unleash your PhD superpowers and figure out what’s next.
Did you know that...
most doctoral students do not aspire to pursue academic careers, yet ‘alternative’ careers are discouraged by faculty?
many PhDs have little knowledge of career paths beyond ‘professor’ and ‘industry researcher’?
most PhDs have little conception of what their future work life might look like?
It's time to explore the world beyond academia.
