I have collaborated with Inside Higher Ed to write a series of articles on my career exploration.
- The first article, “Continuing Questions RE: Careers Beyond Academe,” was published in February of 2023. The article was inspired by the question: “why is it that no amount of conversation on the topic of departures from the professoriate seems to meet the ever-increasing demand for it?”
- In March of 2023, the second article, “How Faculty Can Help Ph.D.s Land Nonacademic Jobs,” appeared online. In that essay, I argue faculty should move away from the “just focus on your dissertation” approach to working with PhD students.
- “Landing a Mission-Oriented Job Beyond Academe” was published most recently in June of 2023. Here, I recommend that PhD students looking to explore careers outside of the professoriate begin with a few key questions and exercises.
My time at Texas A&M University also afforded me the opportunity to develop assignments that bolstered student motivation and creativity. My findings are outlined in an article titled “How Public Scholarship Assignments Benefit Undergraduates.”
