Studies show that career perceptions influence PhD students mental health. The inside vs outside academia debate doesn’t matter. What matters is to inform about both.
Hi, I'm Pauline 🇫🇷, I started this blog in July 2018 to discuss what helped me during my PhD in the hope to help other students :) I'm French and completed my PhD in Switzerland 🇨🇭, to know more about me, have a look at the About page.
I am writing about #soft skills (transferable skills), #career and #mental health because for me these subjects are partly overlapping. More about that in my first blog post: How a doctoral program saved my PhD.
I've been writing about project management applied to academia, and made a resource to provide an overview of different tools available.
I like summarizing and organizing information, have a look at my other resources on social media, and if you're in Switzerland, make sure to check out all my articles about #career in particular this resource: Career Services for PhDs in Swiss Universities and HE 🇨🇭
