I want to encourage PhD students to think about their PhD as an asset that they can leverage in multiple ways. I seek out opportunities to learn and grow in this profession. I am currently participating in a summer faculty development bootcamp to help academics be productive while attaining balance in life. The opportunities are endless for someone who has the right mindset and knows how to think critically. Think creatively about how to leverage your PhD to improve the future of work.
