Overqualified or Under-qualified? Which is it, and what to do about it

Sometimes, employers will say you’re overqualified for a position because you have a PhD! And yet, when you read job ads and see all those required years of experience, you feel under-qualified! So which is it? In this webinar, Beyond the Professoriate Founder L. Maren Wood, PhD will tell you how to pitch yourself to employers.

After attending this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Identify the challenges PhDs face when applying for nonacademic jobs.
  • Describe the importance of translating your skills into the language of employers.
  • Apply strategies to communicate your value to professional employers.
  • Recognize how Beyond the Professoriate programming helps you in your job search.
