Leaving academia is overwhelming.
You've spent years in academia, earning a PhD and training as an expert in your field. It's the only career you've ever known. Even so, you dream of something different.You dream of a fulfilling career where you can work fewer hours, earn more money, and choose where you live. A career that gives you space to enjoy your life.
You're ready to leave academia, but...
...you have no idea what to do, or where to start. You try to figure it out from random blogs, coffee chats, and social media posts, but you still feel lost. You can't afford to waste more time searching for the answers alone.All you need is a step-by-step strategy. You need a strategy that works in 2024, not incorrect or outdated, pre-pandemic advice. You need a strategy from someone who has actually succeeded on the non-academic job market, multiple times, in the past two years.Someone who personally understands how hard this all feels...
