Every week, we scour the Internet for the best industry transition articles for PhDs – so you don’t have to!
Our two consultants independently search for the most informative articles in the categories of networking, CVs/resumes, interviews, transferable skills, academic blues, industry positions, and business acumen.
Our consultants vote on a top article for each category and a top overall article for the week.
