Industry PhD: Transition Out of Academia and Get Hired in 7 Steps is written for PhDs who want to transition out of academia and into a industry career. Why do PhDs want to transition out of academia? Many PhDs feel professionally unfulfilled in academia positions because they are overworked, work in uninspiring roles and are paid marginal academic stipends, fellowships and wages. Far too many PhDs are unable to find any meaning or joy in their academic careers, which negatively impacts both their professional and personal lives. The biggest problem that these PhDs face is a lack of training on how to get a job outside of academia. After all, most PhDs have spent decades--the entirety of their professional careers--in academia. This is why there is, as The Boston Globe frames it, a "Glut of PhDs," which has resulted in, a "PhD employment crisis" according to Policy Options Politiques. Industry PhD is the answer to this employment crisis and is the stepwise blueprint that 18 million PhDs worldwide are seeking. Dr. Isaiah Hankel's 7-step approach provides a consistent and proven methodology that allows PhDs to transition into a new industry without suffering through the painful process of trial and error. Hankel's 7 core steps within Industry PhD include:
  • Industry career options for PhDs
    Communicating the right skills
    Writing industry resumes
    Mastering LinkedIn profiles
    Networking and job referrals
    Generating informational interviews
    Acing industry interviews
