Careers for PhDs: Consulting
About This Event
For a growing number of humanities (and other) PhDs, the field of consulting represents an opportunity to translate their love of and expertise in research into a rewarding career path. Established consultancies are eager to employ candidates with doctoral training in a wide range of capacities, while motivated and creative PhDs are often able to develop a client base and set their own professional agenda. Sharing their insights on the nature of consultant work, the kinds of jobs available in the sector, and how to mobilize your PhD skillset to join a consultancy or start your own are Dylan Ruediger (History PhD, Georgia State University), program manager with the Research Enterprise at Ithaka S+R; and Laura Payne-Bourcy (English Education PhD, Syracuse University), owner of LPB Consulting Services.
