CNY Humanities Corridor “Humanities Beyond the Academy” working group presents …Careers for PhDs: Consulting
Tuesday, May 16, 4:15-5:30 p.m., online via Zoom
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. A panel of humanities PhD-holders will share 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.
