15 Project Management Concepts That Every PhD Should Understand

15 Project Management Concepts That Every PhD Should Understand

By: Isaiah Hankel, PhD

PhDs know how to get a project done.  They know how to juggle different projects, how to prioritize between different experiments, and how to achieve results while managing low budgets. This leads them to believe that they know everything there is to know about project management. But here’s the thing, project management in academia is very different from project management in industry. Not understanding this difference leads PhDs to stay unemployed because they don’t know how to react to project management-related questions during the interview process. If you are thinking that this doesn’t apply to you because you are not…

7 Resume Tips That Are Giving PhDs An Unfair Advantage Over Other Job Candidates

By: Isaiah Hankel, PhD

Resume is your marketing document. PhDs often think that their academic credentials and technical skills should be enough to get them hired in a top industry job.  They underestimate the importance of learning industry etiquette and focus on uploading resumes filled with scientific jargon and technical skills to every job posting that comes their way. As a consequence, they end up in a vicious circle of uploading resumes and never hearing back from employers. Most of these PhDs don’t even know that their resumes are getting rejected by Applicant Tracking System Software before they even reach the hands of a…

The

The "From Scratch" Method Of Setting Up A Successful Job Search Strategy (5 Steps You Can’t Miss)

By: Isaiah Hankel, PhD

I am working on my job search strategy.  Just last week, I sent over 10 CVs through job portals. I hear this from PhDs all the time. They don’t know what a PhD-level job search actually looks like, so they send a bunch of resumes or LinkedIn requests and expect to see results. The thing is, that strategy will take them nowhere.  It isn’t even a strategy. Recently one of our members noticed why uploading resumes online, not only is not a strategy, but is a waste of time.  “I have been following CSA strategies a lot, but today I…

8 Tips For PhDs To Jumpstart Their Careers With Social Media

8 Tips For PhDs To Jumpstart Their Careers With Social Media

By: Isaiah Hankel, PhD

Social media is so fake and shallow. No one shares their problems – only their accomplishments for bragging rights.  I hate LinkedIn. I feel like I’m just bragging and using connections for a job. I don’t have time to keep up with social media as a PhD. I’m busy looking for work! Sound familiar? I said those same things to myself (and anyone who would listen) whenever I needed an excuse to avoid taking social media seriously as a PhD.  Of course, having insulated myself with career academics, they validated my gripes, keeping me in my dead-end bubble. It wasn’t…
