What people are saying about Beyond Prof programming
The Beyond Grad Prof Team has successfully scaled all of the beneficial aspects of individual career advising to institution-wide initiatives, and has created platforms that are engaging and meaningful to the students that have the opportunity to use them.
I’d been in transition for years--first to leave the professoriate and then to join the corporate world--before joining Beyond the Professoriate, with little success. What I appreciate the most about BP is the community of individuals who are at different stages of their academic careers working toward the same goal and supporting one another. Knowing you are not alone in a difficult transition is empowering, and BP is a friendly space to get that much needed support, both practical and emotional.
Beyond the Professoriate has provided a valuable resource to the growing community of practitioners who support graduate professional development and career exploration. Aurora in particular has been impactful on our campus, allowing us to support our doctoral students in their career exploration in ways otherwise not possible.
Beyond the Professoriate helped me understand how others, who left academia, navigated their paths. It also provided concrete, extremely useful advice for the postac job search. The biggest thing it has done for me is to make me feel more confident about my skills and abilities, and show me that I don't have to be afraid of what comes next. In fact, it has shown me how exciting and fun this whole thing can be, instead of terrifying!
