School of Graduate Studies has subscribed to the Versatile PhD (VPhD), an online resource for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows.  This new institutional subscription enables Queen’s students, staff and faculty to access the premium content of the online database free of charge.  The VPhD provides real, practical information on how to transition from a doctoral program into a vast array of non-academic careers.  Authentic resumes and cover letters that led real PhDs to their first position outside of academia and detailed step-by-step accounts of their hiring process and networking opportunities provide students with very pragmatic, detailed information about how to break into the non-academic job market with a PhD (or ABD).
