People like you have said:

"The panel discussions bring in people I would never have found on my own. Hearing about different pathways to an alt-ac career narrated by smart, empathetic and compassionate individuals has been infinitely encouraging when making the difficult transition out of the academy."

"The sea change for me was a panel of post PhDs who came back to speak about their experiences leaving: how, why, outcome. Hearing their experiences made me realize that there was hope, and that I could find a life outside."

"Versatile PhD was a great starting place for navigating the non-academic job market once I realized that was where I wanted to go. The organized information about the type of STEM jobs that are available gave me a good overview to structure my search for a career I would be passionate about. I love the daily forum digest and read it every day. The panel discussions are also great."
