Leaving Academia: My Advice

Not long before I left academia in 2014, I started writing about my experiences. I wanted to both chronicle my journey and chart how others could follow a similar path out of academia. I was a consultant for Karen Kelsky for a few years, working with new and would-be post-academic (or “post-ac”) clients on their job materials, networking, and interviews. I’ve also worked with Jennifer Polk on getting my story and advice out there. Below are my contributions to the growing post-ac advice community:
