Guest posts and interviews in 2013

As well as writing my regular posts for Jobs on Toast this year, I’ve also written guest articles for other blogs and websites serving the post-ac community. There are some great sites out there which I’ve been really pleased to write for, so I hope you find these links useful:

  1. My very own ‘Week in the Life’ series: five posts giving an insight into my day job as a project manager at an ethical bank. Written for Michelle Erickson’s fantastic blog PhDs At Work (in my view the No.1 site for post-PhD profiles)
  2. ‘Project Management as a career path for PhDs’, which I wrote for Nathan Vanderford’s excellent site Integrative Academic Solutions
  3. ‘Deciding who to work for: finding employment outside academia’, which I wrote for the awesome website How to Leave Academia
  4. ‘Preparing for life after the PhD: retrain your brain’, which I wrote for Eva Lantsoght’s blog PhD Talk

I’ve also given two interviews this year about my transition out of academia, which may help you when deciding on your own future path. If you haven’t done so already, check out the following interviews:

  1. Chris Humphrey: interview with Jen Polk, over at From PhD to Life
  2. Chris Humphrey: interview with Dan Mullin, over at The Unemployed Philosopher’s Blog

I hope you enjoy reading/listening; I would love to hear what you think! Please leave your comments or questions below or tweet me @chrishumphrey.

About Chris

I've made the transition from a PhD in Medieval Studies, into a career in business, consulting and project management. But I want to give something back to the researcher community, and help everyone who's facing the challenge of finding work outside academia. Jobs on Toast is a way for me to share my insights and experience, helping you to make a successful career change. Use my five-step plan to get started right away!
