PhD Careers Transitions Beyond Academia

Did you miss last week's episode?


Careers specialist, Dr Holly Prescott joined host Aidan to chat about her experience of of finding a career post PhD and what advice she now gives to others!


Who is Dr Holly Prescott?

Hi, I’m Holly, and one day in April 2011, I cried into my vodka & soda in a bar in Birmingham (UK), convinced that no one would employ me. I was close to completing a literature PhD and felt rudderless. I had been taking a ‘scattergun’ approach to applying for jobs that I thought sounded interesting, but that I really knew little about.


After having been considered a ‘high achiever,’ the idea that I may ultimately not amount to very much was very, very real. From then on, it’s been my goal to help PhDs understand themselves, the job market and make positive steps towards meaningful careers. I’ve now worked with postgrads for 10 years, and my blog PostGradual (phd-careers.co.uk) is my way of sharing what I’ve learned. For PhD Balance, I’ll be discussing making career transitions from PhD to sectors beyond academia.


Where can you find her?
