Coaching

Both Maren and Jen provide individual coaching to PhDs and graduate students interested in non-faculty careers. Are you stuck trying to figure out if being a professor is right for you? Are you ready to launch a non-faculty career but unsure how?  Are you mired in your dissertation wishing you could finish and graduate?  We can help you achieve your immediate and long-term goals.

Although complimentary, Jen and Maren have their own unique styles and services as part of their coaching practices. You can read more about our approaches below.  In addition to our one-to-one coaching, we collaborate on a group coaching course.


Maren circleMaren works with graduate students and PhDs at all stages of their academic careers to help them launch a successful non-faculty job search campaign.  This is primarily done through her online course, Boot Camp for the Post-Academic Job Seeker.  This five unit course is designed specifically for graduate students and PhDs moving from academia to non-faculty careers.  It combines video, worksheets, and one-to-one coaching.  In five units, you’ll learn how to explore career options, identify transferable skills, create professional documents, harness the power of social media, and strategically build a network.

Maren also works to help people finish their dissertation.  She’ll help you create a schedule, break down the writing/research process into manageable steps, and keep you accountable so that you can finish, graduate, and move on to the next stage of your career.
