The Results

Academics face unique challenges when they apply for jobs in Alt-Ac or industry settings for several reasons:

All career changers face obstacles but there are several unique obstacles for those stepping out of academia.

  • It’s been a long time since you were on the non-academic job market. It can be overwhelming.

  • You’re not familiar with current AI systems that scan CVs/resumes: ATS. 

  • You don’t know the lingo and jargon of the industry into which you wish to pivot.

  • Translating your skills is difficult.

You need a clever way to showcase your qualifications, and ensure that the hiring managers see the absolute benefits you bring as an academic with a PhD and years of experience.

Because they shouldn’t need to be convinced; they should be singing it from the rooftops for you!
