Hello and welcome to The Versatile PhD! The free community area of the site is the new home of a thriving online community formerly known as Work For Us.
In Summer 2010, The Versatile PhD will debut a new subscription service that provides high-quality premium content designed specifically for humanities and social science graduate students looking at the possibility of post-academic careers. The service will be very well-priced and will provide the following types of content:
- Career Autobiographies: first-person narratives of humanities and social science PhDs who left the academy and successfully pursued post-academic careers
- Hiring Success Stories: real-life examples of CV-to-resume conversions that resulted in actual post-academic job offers for humanities and social science PhDs (all major disciplines represented)
- Online Career Panels: fantastic virtual conversations between 1200+ Versatile PhD members and 3-5 panelists, all humanities or social science PhDs working in the same given field. Great questions, great answers, great information about careers of interest to humanities and social science PhDs.
Additionally, a referral service will be provided in order to help you connect your graudate students with informational interviewees in a variety of fields.
We look forward to answering your questions, hearing your suggestions and perhaps having your university be one of our first subscribers. Email founder Paula Chambers, Ph.D. at
