101: You Are Being Sold a Lie: How to Plan for a Career Outside Academia

In this episode, Dra. Yvette discusses the topic of how to plan for a career outside academia in light of the adjunctification of academia.

Believe it or not, you likely have had a professor who earns wages that are below the poverty line, relies on public assistance, and/or struggles to meet their basic needs.

If you are being trained to become a tenure-track professor, the grim reality is that there’s a good chance you won’t land a t-t job, not because you’re not competitive or qualified, but rather because there just aren’t enough jobs.

Tune in to this episode to learn a few ways to keep your career options open as you navigate grad school.
