Talk quickly about your your academic journey. You know how why you got attracted to the domain that that you that you studied and then Maybe just a also quickly how. Then you transitioned to the non-academic space. Yeah so i'm i'm originally from southern california small little beach town named called summer land actually and I grew up on the beach. I loved being outside and in the water. Just kind of always fascinated with the ocean Ended up going to uc san diego for my undergraduate degree where i studied A few different things started out. As a pre dental major. Actually i was going to be orthodontist and then decided that that was definitely not for me after quarters of school and ended up switching into a ecology behavior evolution. Because i always love the change. Yeah so i just really liked animals. And i liked the idea of studying something not allowed me to go outside and so i did that. Search majored in. that's when i graduated. I had no idea what i wanted to do though. I didn't really know what a career meant with that kind of a major a lot of direction. I just knew that. I liked science. And i really liked communicating science of love talking to people about what i had learned

Think about it enough to to rights the creator. The creator toolkit now. I came out of mit in the ninety with a couple degrees. I left with my graduate degree masters and phd and started software developer. And i really didn't have a lot of great direction.

Building a More Diverse and Inclusive Academia With Shaz Zamore

"Really want to share. Maybe what if if you have seen changes between when you went through grad school or university and what you see happening today in terms of you know being a woman being a woman of color being being non binary woman of color. Can you talk a little a little bit about the good things that you're seeing happening and how they compared to maybe some experiences that you've had. Yeah yeah so so i. I did identify as women for most. I've always identified as gender queer. But like i've i've occupied women's spaces and had that experience for most of a career and i. It's it's a tough question so it's changed and it hasn't changed. There are definitely. I've seen a lot more top down. I've seen a lot more Administration and kind of structural changes that go in positions. The committee Just this focus on evaluating truly evaluating. How faculties students are are engaging in participating in diversity in in most importantly inclusive efforts which is a cultural shift Not just numerical ship. So i've seen a lot more of that and that's really great. I think it's feel personally. It might just be where. I am in my career and the kind of accolades. I have behind me at this point. But i feel much more comfortable speaking out when something is not okay than i did before I feel like even. If i was an i often am the only black person in the room and somebody says something and no pun intended off color. I feel like if i were to stand up and say something. My white colleagues would be in support rate. That's something that. I think certainly didn't happen to grad school for so that's nice. I like to see that. But then there's also i think we haven't quite had the collective realization about how much has to change War to to actually make a truly inclusive environment And so in that frame. There's kind of like at the individual level at at like the bottom up like who however we rallying to really care about that that's still lacking again because i think we frankly just don't sit down and have the practice of thinking about what the future is. What's it gonna look like. What's what's the classroom physically going to look like. what's lecture actually going to contain. How all of these things. It really sit down and quantify so much scientists as thinkers. But we're not sitting down to quantify what that actually what's it gonna look like. What the end result. How do we actually predict. There's no practice of that And so it's kind of like this. Big hand wavy gray mass. We're like yeah. We're making it better but you. You can't actually make it better if you don't have a goal in mind and so there we really need to see that progress still feels like we need to have some inclusiveness you x. specialist user experience versus to kind of model. What it's going to actually feel like for the for the users war in this case the the students. Yeah question are there. You've you've had to clearly from what you're saying deal with some some some difficulties some exclusion in or you know in your in your path. But were their strategies. Were there things you did or poor people in your path that that were helpful and that you can You know the yeah. They were helpful with that. And are there. Is there some advice for someone who's now at this institution or even in this group sometimes. It's just there's group dynamics writers group culture that is those somehow not so accepting and and that's that's difficult. Is there some advice you can give based on your experience of overcoming these obstacles and coming out stronger after yeah and my advice is echoed by research have a support group has abort group has support group having support group. Have people you can go and go back to your base code. Go back to that natural language. Drop your guard you know. Be yourself be really comfortable. You gotta have those the especially as any sort of minorities especially as intersectional a have your support group for intersectional people. I will acknowledge it. Super hard like for me. For example. Black spaces aren't always queer friendly spaces. Queer friendly spaces aren't always black friendly spaces as really hard thing to navigate. Still even if you're not fully relaxed even if you can't find a black. We are space for example at combination. Even those little bits that you get steps to single person even it goes so far There was one fellow who i think about as mentor. I can't i know his name is added. can't remember his last name but he was a new faculty. he was working in molecular biology at u. Dub i was in bio so we were in the same hallway and i would see him in the hallway. We kinda wave at each other walking by and then when he pulled me aside we just started chatting and anytime i saw him. We would just like stop in the hallway and chat for two or three minutes. Maybe we got a coffee and it was just this idea. It really created this sense of of of culture for meaning academia of what. I really nurtured a thing i needed. And it set the precedent right. Like here's someone. When i see someone frequently you're part of my community. I should have relationship with you to some degree and so in that that. That's someone that i think about a lot. That's a it's a behavior. I think about a lot. How can i bring that forward And i think things like that are also really important like looking at how people give you the cultural needs. Meet your cultural needs and how you can help that with some. Bring that to somebody else.

It might be like a challenge or they might say like, you know, what is a time when you had a disagreement like the question might change but usually the themes are pretty similar so they want to know the way that you act in certain situations. So having you know, I prepare those ahead of time and they're super helpful and interviews. Welcome to Papa.

If I could just get academic job everything would be. Okay. So that was like a downside to it but on the other hand you know. I was really excited by the things that I was saying around me like like the Internet was something that was just really taking off in the late ninety s and I was just fascinated by the internet and this whole and. I mean I. I say Democratic Dissemination of information which is. Not. Disney triple the time easily, but the way. To access to information or study or learning the United. States can be quite elitist or privileged or and causal money and time, but just like the idea that. The anybody can just access any type of information videos and things as well. It was coming along time and could learn anything. They had the Internet connection did just Exchange. My view of the world and so excited me as an educator and as a scholar, this potential and always really enthused by that and could see this trans transformative potential of it and so that's when I kind of thought. Well, this could be an area where. You I would be happy and excited to work in, and then I had to try and figure out. Well, how do I get to that from medieval studies? kind of like the opposite. Of this new of this new techy technological thing..

Danni Reches: How to Enrich Your Experience as a PhD Researcher

"I'd really want Danny to focus on. What's your projects have been you know and? One of them we already mentioned and is quite evident but. Other projects you've been developing besides just your PhD research and the idea is also to see if we can take out of that, how that enriched your experience as a PhD student and how listeners out there could maybe take some some example of that too. Also wherever they are You know find a group of like minded people and also enrich their experience and make it a a richer one and A. How to make their PhD a more diverse experience than just doing their research? That's where I wanted to say. I've been to a lot of different things and this is something my supervisor has warned me for so. Now, a bit more cautious at I'm trying to do it a bit less, but I've been slowed down by the whole situation with corona. Anyway. So I just want that to be a little bit of a warning when I start talking about all the fun things that I did because you definitely have to keep in mind how much a person can do without burning out. By As let me start with w about my love for conferences, especially if they're paid for and abroad. in a way, it allowed me to keep traveling, which is so much love. In, my first year Beastie, I managed to spend three weeks in. Australia where never been before somewhere in the mountains beautiful place. at the form. And there are. A huge conference on different topics with two hundred. Students, not only be as there were just a few these most of them were in. From all over the world is shared my flats with someone from Pakistan right as an Israeli. F from the Philippines ends from South Korea and we went to arts events and I a events conferences about politics about health. All kinds of fields bunket, Moon spoke there prisons of Australia's spoke there I was invited as far as Israel delegation do very fancy dinner with people who worked at important banks and things like that. So this was like the big thing that I was very excited about enemies I might give per station about my research about a Mike Proposal and I got some really useful feedback from people from the field. So this was absolutely great. So in a way, it was a lot of fun at for me. It was free, but it was also different work because I got that feedback that I needed. Has to continue to projects, and then I've also spent some time in Brazil. which was the first time that was really great and I gave myself a few extra days in Rio. also about migration on a learned a lot about migration in the Global South 'cause, I focus very much Europe. And then I've done my trips to Germany for research. So this way, I get to travel been to Cairo in January for sight that have seen a beer minutes. For a conference of the. National Organization for Migration that's connected to the UN. And I presented my research on the bow dare. which was pretty cool and there will so policymakers there which is something I'm very much interested in going into after. Doing. The interesting. So also some networking definitely. And just to see how day spoke about similar topics outside of academia. So these are things that I love doing that definitely projects because you have to apply for these things especially if they involve money right and they need to plan all of your trip started dime and only Gives you a flight ticket place stay but doesn't say anything about the preparation of your actual doc or bolster at the conference. And then there you're also working 'cause you're networking is about your topic trying to get out be volts. Things like that. But for me, it was very motivating. It's It's everything I ever wanted to travel for work right. And besides that, I've always works next to my degrees I am getting scholarship, but it's not enough to survive off. So I'm working also for the center where I study. And they're responsible for organs of guest lectures like getting the guest lecturers in also from countries to speak to our students in English we also have trips for students plans, for example, to embassies here in Israel. So they can see what their options are after the grief. And also conferences and Colloquia. So this way I, really got to learn how to organize the these events and be working on something that's not so much research, but still helps with the network.

Am not saying that the gap year or traveling twenty four seven is necessarily relaxing. This is not only holidays also very hard travelling and planning where you're going to stay that nights. which in a way, it can also be successful exciting. I liked it. That's why I did it but a stint also be successful. Ready Finance but just wanted to do something. That you said can apply to taking three months break right take shorter breaks also take breaks closer to home if you are able to maybe tearing community at that allows you to be outside of your own bubble at two different people because it's also about the people you needs at impresses the dailies bomb you. Talking to them about why they do certain things or do certain things what they regrets were only wets i. think that's the essence like people, youth? Other than outside conflicts among. This can be close to home. I find it very interesting and again it's not something that I would have at the time thought of you know but for people who are out there listening if you have a big decision to take. And either you feeling that there's too much pressure to take it or you really not sure right now take some time may be if you just finished the chapter of your life, it's safe. You make life to three months doing having a job different thing that has nothing to do with it, and that may be the thing that helps you at the end of this kind of short break even get to the answer that you're looking for and finding yourself. Okay. This is what I want to do or this is not what I want to do. Also, not only. sounds very spontaneous and exciting but I think it's also allowing yourself to take that time. even if it's just a few weeks, not a few months. To to show that when you start something, you've considered it and it's not something you just jumped into because other people's opiates. What's your worst? Really your own choice I. Think. It's much easier to live with that than any other way. Yeah it's much much easier to commit to a large project. Let's say like a PhD if it was really youth who took the whole, you know the decision was taken by you and just you although of course when we take these decisions if we have partners children. Are you know there's there's always other. Variables in the equation but. It's easier to commit to something like that if you really decide and if you really wanted it legal with you. And now for a short message, if you preparing to launch your podcast, you may be asking yourself what hosting platform to use. I Launch Papa PhD on Blueberry because I wanted to professional service that would interface with my wordpress website that would robustly broadcasts Papa PhD to all platforms. And that would allow me to grow my podcast in years to come. If.

Danni Reches: Building Your Path In the Social Sciences

"We're going to be talking about how you got to where you are today in academic terms. So we've talked about So you're in Haifa Center for German and European Studies. You're doing a PhD on policy and perceptions of immigrants from the Middle East in. Europe. how did you get before talking about exactly what you working on? How did you get to the PHD? How was the whole academic journey for you? It all comes down to a big coincidence adds to the honest I. Didn't really know what I was getting into. When I signed up for BBC or or applied for position actually see what happened is data. I moved to from the Netherlands when from. partially to be able to go from the humanities. Faculty which I had had my Ian Levin's. To Straits ahead, go into political science, which is in social sciences. Different faculty in unknowns wasn't able to do that. Unless. Would have done a year in between to get some more courses than every year the University of Haiphong. Because I have taken some classes earlier recent conflicts, which also political science they allowed me to state go into get him. So that's one of the reasons that I moved here that I started doing that M. A. N. as I loved to science. I love the small programs with just a few students so that I could really choose my own self aches that have tonight. So when I wrote my master's thesis. Supervisor said I'm not only in political science departments also a part of the sense of Germany abuse. Studies. And we are you, we opened up two positions for his suits with a scholarship. maybe you WANNA consider applying for us because my master's thesis was about the refugee crisis in Europe. So you're being center that was something interesting. So. I was like, well, you know I like what I'm doing I like the writing of first ongoing on the gap here in Salia and from there alright the application. Which I did from the Wifi at McDonald's. In, Australia was as a backpacker. I applied for the Specie position. After having spoken to. Supervisor Miami was over with. With that. Center. and. Then eventually I got the news was still in Australia that I've gotten that I got the position and that when I was be back in this is something I was starts. Would Abuse De was How much effort at time and? A lifestyle is just a position was not clear to me and I had to learn a lot along the way. I am very happy to be hosting bolts costs what to do with Dad's. Because I get to listen to others. To hear a how they've been dealing with things and I'm also happy like you said before I confess that on people who are just starting now you mentioned something that I found really interesting and I didn't do that. I didn't think it was something possible. I didn't. It didn't arise in my mind you talked about taking a gap year. I'd like to talk about that and. Yet to talk about how you took that decision, how easy was it to take it and how you organize to be able to go backpacking in Australia that how Atlantis? Well. It's always been something on my mind right Australia as child's. To seeking room for real. To See all these amazing places where there's desert big cities. At. But also the tropics and everything in between. was. Something that was always on my mind and I learn about this program way to go on a working holiday visa. which that people with my nationality? Is Fairly, easily apply just go online you a little bit of money and then within twenty four hours I got the email zero mine visa. To go to. For one year allowing you to work so that you could also finance your said there. and I knew that this was only possible until the age of certain. Now, not necessarily tell you how old I am now but I'm eating it. At some point you know before thirty, this is my goal in life is to make it to the and. This was the right time in my life because I just finished Ma I. Wasn't sure yet. What was GONNA do exactly with bats whether I was GONNA look for a job. He is railway move to or if I was GONNA find a job in Europe Netherlands or any other. Country which is an option. Or. Continue studying because I. got this idea for my. Evasive advisor, Ovadia about the Beastie. So this was a good time for me to go about and think about it in a different setting and my everything together for quite a while already. Also got really lucky as an Israeli to death that same visa that he at applies for from. Yeah it was really a dick out of the lottery. And then. You know. To go within so many months otherwise you will be valid anymore. So like Yoga we're doing.

"Domain that interests you. You'll see you'll find advice you can use to start building plan for yourself. Now. A lot was stalled during season one about transferable skills but a lot was also told about the blind spots, the things you don't naturally come out of graduate school knowing and being prepared for. One of the main ones has to do with preparing your CV and preparing to interview in a non. Academic Setting. If you listen back to the interviews where we spoke about job hunting and interviewing outside of academia. The main advice that came up again, and again was to tailor your CV to each potential employer and specifically to give emphasis to the soft skills you have accrued while performing research and keeping to a minimum. One guests even said to a single line anything to do with your publications, presentations or academic awards. He need to take a point I approach where the person reading your CV. Will know right away that you are a good candidate for the position. The second aspect has to do with interviewing. You may have done a bunch of oral presentations poster presentations, even elevator pitches to do with your research. And the performance skills you developed we'll definitely serve you in an interview setting. The difference is that when interviewing for a position industry, for example. Rather than listing your skills, the techniques you master the tools you can use. The actual goal of the exercise is for the interviewer to assess whether you are a good match for the position and for the team. So there will be a component of body language showing knowledge of the organization's mission in structure and having a good story to tell about how you came to be sitting in front of them for this interview. This is something you don't learn graduate school, but it's something you can prepare for one of the points. My guests stressed as being key in your career exploration and in preparing for interviews is doing your homework about the organization offering the position and ideally reaching out to people in similar positions and asking them for informational interviews around coffee or these days on video conference. Asking someone who has followed the same path that you want to embark on pointed questions about the reality of the job about remuneration about company culture is the best way to get to know what interviewers might be looking for in a candidate. In. Parallel with this, especially, if this is your first time interviewing. The other technique that was mentioned in recommended was rehearsing. In front of a mirror with friend. Preparing to deliver your story in the best way possible and to make it clear point of why you're the right candidate for the position. If you know that type of questions commonly asked even better prepare and rehearse your answers for them to. This way on the day of the interview, you'll be able to focus on the human interaction rather than on the content and show yourself in the best possible. In this first season, we also talked a lot about life balance and mental health. Stress is a part of our modern life and life as a researcher has a few particular flavors of stress. But my guests were clear about three components that can help you strike a balance and have a healthy journey. Physical Exercise Move Econo- team sport. Stay fit. Having a community outside the lab. Team sports do this too, but you can get into a club started student group. And finally including me time in your weekly schedule. This. said it is possible that other factors you have no control of our affecting your inner balance. If this is the case find professional help and take the necessary steps to heal. This may or may not lead to resuming your research and it's fine. What is important above all is that you stay healthy. With this note on mental health and on finding a healthy balance during graduate studies I'm going to wish you a great week a lot of success in your life and career exploration, and thank you again for being a listener of the show. But before I go I want to officially announced that next week we'll be the season finale special. To make sure that you don't run out of. PODCASTS. Listen this summer I've teamed up with the what are you going to do with that podcast and we've done a twin episode. Next Thursday the last interview of both our seasons he's going to air at the same time. I will be on their show and then he says there host will be on Papa. PhD. So, be sure to tune in and witness this academic podcast Collab- I'll be expecting you. And if you want to help the podcast, there are two simple things you can do. Number One Sharon episode that you really like with a friend or colleague. That's a great way to help and to spread the word. Number two if you're on an APP that allows rating or commenting, do that leave a star rating and leave a comment? That will help other people out there find the podcast enjoying the adventure. And it also gives me a chance to open a dialogue with all of you which I really enjoy. So, thank you again. Happy Listening and see you next week. And now for a short message. If, you're preparing to launch a podcast. You may be asking yourself what hosting platform to use. I launched puppies de on blueberry because I wanted to professional service that would interface with my wordpress website. That would robustly broadcast Papa PhD to all platforms.

"Hi there. Reaching. The end of season one of Papa Peach and today I just wanted to thank all the listeners out there who've been following the show around the world. It's been quite humbling to see the show grow as it did in this first year. So again, one of the things that I wanted to today's to thank you you were out there thinking about your. About your masters degree and thinking about what your career can look like in the future. I really hope that the conversations that I've been sharing on the show have inspired you in your journey. Welcome to pop up each with David Mendez the podcast where we explore careers in life after Grad school with guests who have walked the road less traveled and have unique stories to tell about how they made their place in the world of constantly evolving rules. Get ready to go off the beaten path and hop on for an exciting new episode of Papa PD. I feel extremely grateful for having had guests that spanned so many different academic domains from the life sciences to engineering to psychology to literature. The reach of these conversations has by far surpassed. What I had imagined was possible when I set out to launch the PODCAST. So I also want to send out my heartfelt thanks to all the guests who have been unpopularity on this first season. Looking back on all these conversations and thinking of you, the listener who is thinking about your future about what path to take about what decisions to make. I feel that one of the common threads having come out of all these conversations and that he's may be the most important. was allowing yourself to experiment during your graduate degree, not only with your research. But importantly, outside of it, this can take the form of getting involved in student societies volunteering in outreach projects being part of communities around supports or creativity. But also internships and industry or taking breaks where you try something completely different before embarking on a new chapter of your academic life. Another common thread that I feel is very important has to do with how you perceive yourself as an academic as a researcher as a candidate for.

"People submit their applications. And then there is evaluation and. Some of the proposals are selected for funding. So, this is a big program and I also I gained believe very much in this program, because it is a unique opportunity for young people to do their their page the with the best stir. Conditions and circumstances and We have some very innovative aspects. Like for example. We are giving our contracts employment contracts, so it's it's A. It's a job. It's not just. It's not a scholarship. It's not a it's not. It's not a scholarship. It's a work. It's a contract. An employment contract and people can build their careers for that okay okay. Is it in all domains is pizzas in all domains. It's in all domains. Ill look the thing. Is that these consortia? submitted their proposal in all possible domains, but only some of them are. CHOSEN WAS Selected. So we do receive applications in all, and also then we have. A We have dividing the budget to according to the number of applications in each domain sold. As a matter we are not. It's not that we fund more. Well, we actually more projects in one domain, but depending on the number of applications that they are making. I don't know if it's this is. Clean Anyway it's proportional. Yeah, yeah, it's proportionally exactly so, but we do find all kinds of applicant all domains. And so how do I combine all my were? Yes. Yes, because I am in the army independent where it is about physics cocoa, so I have projects in physics, I monitor projects that are A. Maintenance is physics then also they have to do to talk about the impact and that impact can to the society. To the research etc, so I gain then I use my knowledge about cows signs in society. So will this impact and then they have to carve out check DVD's so I use my education studies Diadema. Use it done in this sense that okay we do have also people from Italy but those are a lot of colleagues diarrhea. Customer. Where I work. Along with his mother, and that last my worker as project manager in the past of course. Gives me. The skills to be able to monitor the projects in the best way. Because now you processed officer right? I'm a project officer. Can You you're for people who might be interested in? Seeing what you do or or learning more about what you do, describe a little bit more of. A, maybe comparing to a project manager, what's the? What's the incremental was the difference with project? Officer! Yes. Okay, so The project first of all. We monitor projects and they have to implement their work. According to the Plan that they have submitted twice in the sense that they are analyzing their job in wetback ages with tasks. They have deliverables. They have outcomes so I'm not implementing the project, but I have I have to be able to monitor what they are doing and also I'm I have to be able to to save their their initial plan. Is, good or not in the same. That's why this task so late. Why do you start at so laden, not area? If you want to have results, then, maybe you should start it. you know in time, and then also what are they re allowed comes of the project and whatnot they. Are The risks for the implementation of the project and how? You. They care of these a soul that are. Many aspects of project management. But as I, said from the monitoring point of you. End Okay this is a big part of my daily work, because a project hazard nation of four years, and so we have we follow project during for years, which is not as more time of his monae amount of time and the other begun. my. Task that we have is that is each year we have the goal. which we! we need to first of all. We need to find experts. That we evaluate the proposals then we need to make contracts and. Then we have A. we have a remote more M. evaluation period where experts evaluate the proposals, and in the end we have the list of this elected proposes that we'd be funded. This is A. Procedure that is implemented each year. And each year we start some new projects, and then we have projects in different guy dimes of their implementation. So it is basically project management, but also it's also contract management. It has also some legal aspects because we have. We have rules that follow and ablation that they that the come from a legal contract. and. Then we have also colleague that can help us in matters that we don't know where we don't. Have the knowledge that hot one. and. This is very interesting for me. These very interesting because it is. If we get people, we see how our program has impact on real people. Not You know generally on the society. Generally on the society, but I mean you know you can also see specific impact on people, and then now we also sometimes have A. Some big successes for example We had the project that the fatos had the participant had them. They will go also a three door to door three hundred.

The life academia is very full of existential questioning and once you find a solution Russian let it let it sinking and and then take the risk like there's no there's no right path you just you'll you'll see. There is really not as solution of formula and you have been and till now if you are. PG students say until now you've been following a certain direction that the educational system has provided you or this society that you are in but you realize that there are so many avenues and so many possibility. So yeah chill out I would say And and get some Sun on and get some positive vibes wherever you can find and yeah go for it. It's I know that it seems like a race I I know that he seems very complicated for many people but I I really feel. There's always some sort of solution and you just have to. Yeah I don't know if it's wait for it but once you found it don't let it go and let it be so twenty. Five is one eleven to share. Here's some advice on how to choose your own path doing your Grad Studies. I think people should If you really love science and you want to dive in in research you should indefinitely go for a PhD. And it's okay if you change your minds midway and you change a little bit route don't forget it's your pitch it's not your supervisors answers. Its European so you have the right to choose your own path chooses supervised. The choice of supervisor is super important so chooses supervisory cit. I would not just for his or her scientific resume but also for their human qualities their personality the way the work. It has to work for you as well. The other thing is when you're midway through the supernatural to have doubts especially between the second and third year when everything is going wrong think because usually when it goes wrong between the second and the third year and you really wonder what am I doing with my life but if you want to do science related stuff well just just hang in there and finish it it will be worth it because when you finish your it's not just just the signs that you've learned you learned a set of skills. That will be super important for you in the future like problem solving and teamwork and meeting me any other people in getting people to help you solve problems and looking for answers and so many things that you learn along the way so having a PhD is an assets if you're doing a PhD in thinking of becoming a Pi. Well that's probably not going to happen. The numbers are not in your favor but having a PhD is wonderful because it opens doors and if you want to many other science related jobs having the is obviously a plus and even if you're not going to science well lots of consultants they value having people with PhD's because they know they're problem solvers and consultants will l.. That's their day to day job south problem so having a PhD's always an asset and this is it for twenty nine hundred. I I hope you have enjoyed the episode and to share great new content with you in twenty twenty so stay healthy keep investing yourself and keep tuning in every Thursday Thursday to hear news stories and get new ideas on how to carve your career.

"In episode eleven. Chris can talk about resources available to people looking into enterpreneurship to produce We're at a time where there are loads of resources available to people coming out of Grad school especially with entrepreneurial unreal ideas on. There's tons of really good accelerator programs. Be At y combinator or at creative destruction lab program which is a program that we did That was phenomenal. But honestly you know the biggest value to a lot of those programs is that it introduces you to Lots of other founders. Lots of other people trying to do similar things It may not be the exact same company or the exact same technology but but they're all struggling with different varieties of the same problems And so talking to them can be hugely helpful. In episode Twelve Adriana Bankston talks about the importance of learning to tell your story learn how to talk about your science to other individuals and other groups who are not scientists so even if you have friends that are not in science and I'll talk to them and see if they understand what you're doing taking classes and You know being able to. I think I think the way that we started as creating resources that you know if institutions may have them or if they don't have them it's always helpful to try and create on yourself south in episode thirteen. Dr Kiki Sanford Talks About Imposter Syndrome. And how to deal with it. So imposter auster syndrome is something that we are hearing a lot about these days Just know that if you are in graduate school you have gotten there for a very good reason and you are a capable intelligent human being and You know find other people people that you can connect with. I think that is number one. Humans are social beings. And if we keep all these things to ourselves it's it's damaging in the end and we need to be able to connect with other people about about these thoughts of this this thing this thing. We're attempting graduate. School is a long a long and arduous adventure. And you it. You're not always going to feel like you're winning right. It's not always winning. There's a lot of losing. There's a lot of failure and it makes you feel really bad and it makes you doubt yourself So find other people. I mean if you don't have have a great relationship with your P.. I find other Grad students find other advisers but you you need to search for those people all You know sometimes they come to you but you need to be willing to open your eyes and see them as a as a possible. Small connection in Episode Fifteen David try it talks about the importance of taking part in student. Life pick something limit you like. Don't give up on too early because sometimes it was done one semester in whatever program and I don't like it so I have to find something else. Life moves quickly a Don't stick to something for ten years if you know you hate it after five and I'm thinking to myself in litigation but as far as the study goes just be diligent. Make friends with the students and something I also forgot is make friends with the professors and not friends. Buddy buddy just left the professors know that you're interested in what you're studying what you're what what's going on because when a professor knows that you're serious and that you exist and that you're responsible and you're taking things seriously On the one hand it's good to know the professors personally but on the other hand would if it comes to asking for a revision of an exam and the professor knows that you've been working hard all semester versus. He's never seen you except when it comes to complain about an exam it changes things a little bit. That's the very strategic way to look at it but knowing when your professors and getting to know them having getting to know what they want is also amazing but as far as the transition get out there meet people get get another city at just. Don't get stuck in the habit of going to school going home and You know not not not meeting some people and not getting out there in Episode Sixteen Seth Roger Shake run talks about why it is important to set short and long-term objectives support yourself try and create Or figure out what the the sort of short term objective is and And you know like a long term objective for the long-term onto that have to be very specific like I want to save the lives of MOMS and babies in Africa but it can be like I I wanna want to have meaningful impact in. Someone's life in help right that. That's one long-term objective and then the short term one is to do this. I think I need to understand how. Oh you know. Drugs make their way into the market And then from that work your way backwards to understanding what skill sets you need need and learn as much audible in episode Teen Simon. More asks a question that can help you throughout your professional life. You gotta constantly ask yourself what are you gonNa be when you grow up. It's not gonNA be the same it's GonNa keep it all again like whatever you graduate High School Graduate University right here is not. I mean I think either. Hopefully it won't stay that you're you're gonNA have all things will change in my state of same little while but some point is GonNa Change. You gotTa keep evaluate screen when he asked and that's been very in episode nineteen a Bill Police. It talks about why mental health should be your top priority. Yeah but I mean I think of when you have an accident you break your leg you go to the doctor and the doctor CEO you have yet to take some rest okay. And they give some exercises and and nobody ever tells us that you can also break your leg in your head. I mean something can go wrong with your brain you re using I mean especially people who have intellectual jobs they used brings everyday so football players. You go there you run us you tackle cul- and that's something you great something or you kind of You get an injury but did you notice Mandel so the brain can get interest. And there's IT's no permanent. I mean we have also a section. If if the brain has a problem is something permanent is mad is stupid is whatever is I know. The Bray is so considerate Massu. At some point. The brain has something that goes wrong. and which is something that would happen to everyone in life and then if the only thing you you have to do is to take some risks just like the saints too when you twist. Your Ankle Takes Abreast Youtube Fisher. Green you break something more serious. They said motorist I or even goes to the doctor and the doctor was okay. We should trust. Is it just it. Just bother you buddy so yes. Mental health is important but is important also took doc notice that we have we have not just to look after that we just we have the right to to be ill simple. Put up sometime in. The Twenty drew slack talks about the importance of reaching out to professionals in your areas of interest be fearless and and be Determined in in in chatting with people seeking out opportunities for mentorship of the knowledge gathering as early as is often as time permits always. I was found people so so happy New Year to help I think as scientists especially you know coming back to my own personal Or our personal sort of domain Because we're you know we're always held to account and we're never far away from Up from from some episode of failure writing as researchers We we have a out of humility that makes us ly help people but I found it in other domains too. So yeah I would. I would say leverage Every every opportunity audible and don't just Decide Eh you're going to settle on on one narrow area of of study a research career path. And you know. I think you don't know what you don't know in episode. twenty-one Mug with medicine talks about the importance of starting to network right now doing in your academic life tried to network. Don't stay focused only on the microscope. You have to log to have to talk to other. People have to lobby also tried to get a sense of the budget. How much you're spending? How can you make processes better in faster around you and this also counts more cost effective than you know more more efficient in general? That's that's something like that Damian lax but you you can try to develop on your own by the network and the knowledge around if you'd like to do something courses. Are you know thinking about entrepreneurship. Go to those networking events. Go to the to the talks. Listen how it is. Don't be afraid to talk with people what they feel about about it. What's their major challenges and see if it's really for you and pursued a career for women in general I think the most important important to remember that issue there? You're Likes to be there in Kenya. Where in a high position or wherever you are remember to look back and try to help others birds.

The podcast where we explore careers in life after Grad school with guests who have walked the road less traveled and have unique stories to tell about how they made their place in the world of constantly evolving rules get ready to go off the beaten path and hop on for an exciting new episode of Papa PhD. I'd really love you the audience to play an active role in the show.

FM FOR SLASH CAPUCCI and drop us a voice message to be featured on a future episode on the PG see website you can also subscribe to our newsletter and get our resource sheet at the bottom of every page and you can also leave us a written message contacts page. Welcome to the show on episode one. The new Murchison shared about the importance of allowing self to think big when thinking of career opportunities. I think the the first biggest thing would be To to think big about what the possibilities are you know Well I think you know things like like this project. You're working on you know things it's like this podcast really help people to to realize there are a lot of opportunities to raise the go in addition to just you know continuing on academia right. So you know. Don't be scared to kind of be a little bit audacious about what what kind of direction you might be able to go into And to really think about what. What's what's GonNa work for you when it's going to resonate for you And then you know to you know work figuring out how you're gonNA spend yourself how you're going to and how you're GonNa get all personal brand how you're GonNa you know how you're GonNa spin it so that you're the right person to do that. Ah On episode. Two Joel. mccower talked about the importance of staying curious. I you still learning stuff. Yeah I thought I've got a PhD. I'm an intelligent person But when I was doing my MBA. I realized that If you're not not studying something quite rigorously you know. You don't feel union in especially of course I was in my late forties doing my mba as well but You don't Your mind does begin to stagnate so keep leading cause after a year of my MBA. I felt I was twenty years younger mentally again. My agility amd back and that was great you know is a great feeling To I would say just keep letting no matter what it it is do Of course you know Learn about extraterrestrial life. You know If physicals search for extraterrestrial life or learn about anything I think that's really important again. Every opportunity increases you'll network on episode three Mark Roberts shares. Why should never feel like you're stuck professionally? The key mindset is just to keep reminding yourself that if what you're doing say that new job outside Academian started if it doesn't live up to your expectations that doesn't mean that you made the wrong and that somehow failed so you really should have just stayed in academia. Now that's not that you can always leave. That new job can find another the job either in the same field perhaps discovered that field just isn't for you so if something brand new again you're really never stuck in this. You convince yourself you're stuck and so What what I would really recommend is that everybody is their own pep squad? So when things aren't aren't working out just keep telling yourself that things will turn around you one way or another on episode four Rob Hutchison talks about why it's important to identify your strong suits. I I would say to identify what you are good at and what you enjoy doing so they may not not necessarily be the same thing but hopefully future job would contain elements of both and next. I would say start working on your brand early so so this would mean developing your CV and your Lincoln page but also putting together your elevator pitch to summarize your profile. This is something that you should have prepared to recite someone on its opportunities arises and then third I would say. Don't be afraid to take a leap to try new things and do things that scare you like. I mentioned before some people might like the idea of just doing the same old repetitive tasks and over and over again. But if you want to progress in your career keep things interesting and do more meaningful work and makes a real difference whether it be for your clients or for anyone else that I think they need to take risks and put yourself out there. On episode six Fiona Robinson Talks about the importance of finding your passion. If you're doing research I think that the two top things you're at are transferable from that are your critical critical thinking skills and your ability to take a big project rated into pieces analyze those. Get those done tied back together and bring her back to the whole. I think you can do that pretty much. Anyone doing research is being back. Then you can do anything you can. You can take on any kind of challenge. So then it's finding where do you want to put your allergies. What are you passionate about? I know they say you know do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life. Whatever you still have to work? It's not always fun and not everybody gets to work doing what they. But there's gotta be something but you're doing or that you wish you in that that draws on episode seven Philippa Kereta Bauza talks about. Why you deserve to be where your today? Life is really really stressful nowadays in every field so you really stressful but if you are doing winging it is because it deserves and love your child as it's been hard in win nowadays the working. Where'd you live science will? Is Everything Itar and so rest. This will take all these days on episode eight. Emily Blue Roberts tells us what's important to have a side hustle during your PhD. Start doing actual work outside of your role role as a graduate student OR POST DOC By work I don't necessarily mean paid work. Although that is preferable it could be volunteer work but anything just just to gain any kind of experiences outside of your primary one as a researcher As a student as a trainee because working saying if it's a side hustle or a volunteer position or an internship or whatever it is gives you again those additional perspectives That you might be seeking at this this time and you know usually something you can put on your CV. Because a lot of the the fear I think at this stage is around I don't have any work experience. I don't have any reason working experience. All employers are looking for the PhD plus two years. He's Mary's as an entry level position. Well of course we know. That's negotiable right But something you can do while at the same time you're finishing her PhD. You can start that work experience clock even on a part time basis just by reaching out and having some of these other Arab experiences in episode nine killer look shows advice on finding a fulfilling career. Yeah so that is A. It's obviously a huge task to that transition and to even begin to understand what you want to do and I think one of the main things is needs to do. Your research find vocation that is profitable fulfilling but also can provide value to your audience and make you feel like you're making a valuable contribution And that's not always the easiest thing to do but if you do that research in you you have a decent idea that something's actually going to earn your money and filling. That's ninety.
