Preparing Grad Students for Careers Outside of Academia

Billie Hara

ProfHacker, Chronicle of Higher Education, October 4, 2011

“ProfHacker’s ethos from its inception has been to not provide an answer to any given question.  Instead, we supply an answer that is useful to us (or to the writer of a given post), and then we ask you how you handle that particular situation.  We believe in crowdsourcing.  Today is one of those posts that is pointed asking you, readers, a few questions.  We (and by this I mean the industry of higher education) need to do something differently.  We need to train graduate students for careers that are outside of higher education.”
