WHOM WE SUPPORT
There was a time when getting an Interdisciplinary PhD was a thing of glory. It was deeply challenging to obtain an advanced degree, but once you had it, career success was inevitable. You were treated as valuable in academia.
There was a time when getting a Interdisciplinary PhD was a thing of glory. It was deeply challenging to obtain an advanced degree, but once you had it, career success was inevitable. You were treated as valuable in academia.
But this is no longer the case.
For most Interdisciplinary PhD students and postdocs, tenured professorship is a lie. Day in and day out, Interdisciplinary PhDs exhaust themselves and allow academia to chip away at their mental and emotional wellbeing. The Interdisciplinary PhDs Guild is not satisfied with this trend. We are dedicated to showing PhDs something they have forgotten about themselves…
Their incredible value.
Industry needs what Interdisciplinary PhDs have to offer, and we have the resources you need to change your life with a high-paying, top-level industry career that fulfills you personally and professionally. It’s time to remember your value as an Interdisciplinary PhD and take your career into your own hands.
Here’s the Targeted Mentoring You’ll Receive from the Interdisciplinary PhD Guild
Module 1 – Importance Of A Transition Plan
This module explores the importance of having a transition plan to get out of academia and into an industry position. We also discuss why there is no future for Interdisciplinary PhDs in academia and set the foundations you need to understand your value in industry and start thinking about the steps you have to take to start your industry job search.
Module 2 – Know Your Skills And Options
This module explores the most relevant transferable skills that Interdisciplinary PhDs develop during their time in grad school and why these are so important for different industry positions. This module also discusses the concepts of partial and full pivot when it comes to your industry transition, as well as the specific industry positions where you can find rewarding careers. After going through Module 2, you will have a better understanding of the careers available to you and which are a better fit, so you can start setting up your job search strategy.
Module 3 – Mastering The Industry Mindset
This module takes a deep dive into the importance of a targeted LinkedIn profile, resume, and cover letter and how to craft each of them to ensure you wow industry employers. This module will show what to include (and what not to include) on your LinkedIn profile and resume to demonstrate your credibility as an industry professional. We will also cover some tips to increase your visibility on LinkedIn. Module 3 will teach you how to craft a resume and cover letter that will convince employers that you are a top job candidate. We will show you how to move from a resume that describes your previous job duties to one that showcases your quantifiable achievements and gives prospective employers confidence that you will produce in your target role.
Module 4 – Networking & Interviewing
This module provides instruction on the ins and outs of networking, informational interviews, and referrals. You’ll learn the right way to approach new connections that will help you grow and diversify your network. We also explain the best approaches to phone, video, and in-person interviews. You’ll learn how to prepare for each step of the interview process and how to respond to a variety of interview questions. At the end of this module, you will know how to leverage your network in your job search and how to prepare for different interview settings to ensure you land your dream position.
