57 Ready for a Change? – with Jennifer Polk

Jennifer Polk coaches PhDs ready to make a career change.

It’s the time of the year when many of us slow down and think about our career decisions. Are you happy with yours? Are you considering a change? I am, in fact, going to make a change in 2021.

On this podcast, I talked about careers outside of academia a couple of times. This time I talk with Dr. Jennifer Polk from Toronto, Canada. She’s a career coach for PhDs. I came across her Twitter account a while back and thought this would make a great episode.

She describes how she helps PhDs to find out what they want from life and how to find a fitting job.
