For Your Academic Job Search

An Important Announcement from the Co-Founders of Beyond the Professoriate

We’re excited to announce a new series of online events and an expansion of our Community for PhDs and graduate students actively on, or considering, the academic job market.

Here’s why. We believe that PhDs and graduate students should make an informed decision about their career options, and one of those options is an academic job. For many, a job as a professor is a dream years in the making. While there are fewer jobs than we’d like there to be, every year new assistant professors are hired.

We will help you be as prepared as possible as you pursue this dream.

So come join us. When you join the Community, you’ll find a space to talk about and explore all your career options. We have a specific group just for academic job market applicants. Ask questions, collaborate, share stories, and support each other on this journey.

Our first events are happening October 9th and 10th. These kick-off events are free for anyone to attend live. Replays will be available to Community members for two weeks, as always.

And, if you decide an academic job isn’t right for you and decide to leverage your education in a different career path beyond the professoriate, we’ve got your back. Plus an entire library full of informative, encouraging videos to help you see other possibilities.

We’re excited. Please join us!
