Doctoral students and postdoctoral scholars in the humanities and social sciences across the country and beyond have some new help to discover a world of career possibilities, thanks to an employee in Graduate Studies.
ImaginePhD, a free online tool for career exploration and planning, was launched Monday by the Graduate Career Consortium. Teresa Dillinger, academic administrator of professional development programs for the graduate division and a member of the association, has led the project over its three years of development.
“Through our conversations with Ph.D. students and their faculty mentors, we’ve identified a gap between doctoral education and the diverse career paths that Ph.D.s in the humanities and social sciences pursue,” Dillinger said. “ImaginePhD was created in response, and we hope it will bridge this gap and encourage Ph.D.s to choose careers that align with their expressed skills, interests and values.”
