New Resource Available for Job-Seeking Graduate Students

Concerned about the academic job market? Thinking about nonacademic careers? Georgia Tech now offers a resource that will make your life a little easier.

“Georgia Tech faculty members are well prepared to advise students on academic careers — where we hope many doctoral students end up,” said Susan Cozzens, vice provost for Graduate Education and Faculty Development. “But the faculty have asked for help with providing advice about careers outside of universities, and Versatile PhD helps to fill that gap."

Here are a few of the reasons to check out Versatile PhD:
  • Career Autobiographies: There are first-person narratives in which people tell their professional stories, complete with all the twists, turns, and surprises that shaped their careers.
  • Hiring Success Stories: You'll find authentic application materials used by real humanities or social science Ph.D.’s or ABD’s getting their first nonacademic jobs.
  • Archived Panel Discussions: Seven times a year, panel discussions are held on the website, featuring four to six Ph.D.s and ABDs — all working in the same nonacademic field — describing how they got in and answering questions. Careers already covered include federal government, freelance writing and editing, higher education administration, higher education consulting, and policy analysis.
