Career Advice by PhDs, For PhDs

Our research shows that PhDs define career success as doing work that has a positive impact on society, keeps them intellectually engaged and inspired, and connects them to people and projects that matter to them. This kind of career and life can be found within academia, and far beyond it. And that’s why PhDs work everywhere, across all industries and sectors, contributing their talents and skills to benefit society.

Through the two programs of study in Aurora, students are empowered to make informed decisions about their career path and learn successful job search strategies from other PhDs.

Currently, Aurora has over 70 hours of on-demand videos, and new content is added monthly. Seminars, career panels, and interviews feature over 150 PhDs who have successfully launched careers in industry, non-profits, government, and higher education administration. This is a one-of-a-kind platform, designed to compliment existing resources on your campus. 

Aurora is only available to universities and professional organizations. Individuals should join the Beyond the Professoriate Community, the online career hub for PhDs.
