The Versatile PhD (VPhD, for short, in this blog post) is an online resource and community for PhDs considering careers outside the "traditional" academic faculty route. The Vanderbilt Graduate School is an institutional subscriber to VPhD, so Vanderbilt students and postdocs have access to all of VPhD's premium content. This includes real-life examples of PhDs and ABDs who went into each of the careers portrayed: their stories, advice, inside information about their fields, even the actual resumes and cover letters they used to get their first post-academic jobs.
