Academic life and the careers you can develop with a PhD are anything but one-size-fits-all. Navigating graduate school, faculty life, and postac or altac paths requires stamina, perseverance, and creativity. Even still, unexpected relationships and unforeseen challenges regularly emerge, and sometimes to thrive, you need to look beneath the surface.

Not all feedback is created equal—some might actually be toxic. Here’s what to look out for.

Academic burnout is real and can creep up on you, even after the rigors of your grad program are over.

Searching for altac/postac jobs requires a different strategy than pursuing academic work, one that doctoral training doesn’t necessarily prepare you for.

Teaching and acting have more in common than you might think.

In the highly politicized landscape of higher ed, your digital footprint can impact your career (and life) in unexpected ways, so increasing your digital literacy is always a good idea.
