Ph.D. student becomes Post-Doctoral Fellow, who becomes an Assistant Professor, who becomes an Associate Professor, who becomes a Professor, who becomes... well the list can continue. This is a typical thought trend of many who consider getting a Ph.D. while the reality is different. During this talk, we will discuss the theoretical perspective of life after graduate school and what reality looks like. In addition, this talk will highlight transitions in career paths and fields and how to overcome the stress. In conclusion, this talk will go through an overview of what matters and what doesn’t matter beyond the Ph.D.
