Did you know that 60% of all PhDs end up unemployed?

Reports by the UK Royal Society of Chemistry, the National Science Foundation and The Atlantic have found that most PhDs end up unemployed at some point in their careers because they are not trained in industry career development.

Did you know that 350,000+ PhDs are granted every year?

372,000 PhDs were granted last year but less than 1,000 full-time tenure professorships opened up based on a review of all accessible data. Meanwhile, low-paying, overworked postdoc and adjunct professorships are at a 40 year high.
