Show Notes

Recorded prior to the COVID19 outbreak, this episode takes up the question of dishonesty in academia. From the temptation to pad your CV, to misrepresenting your research results, there are many places large and small where the potential to lie arises. Karen and Kel talk about why you must not. Not just because of ethics and bad karma, but because it usually comes back to bite you in the ass.

Ep. 2.19 You Do Have A Particular Set of Skills

We turn to the practical. You have spent years occupying a very narrow space, getting more and more defined by your discipline. In this episode we show you the path out of the academic specific mentality of your skills. Trust us. They are transferable. We talk about what your skills are and how to translate them for people outside the academy.

Ep 3:7 Quagmire of Failure

Part three in our three-part series about getting Unstuck. So much of the academic experience is about feelings of failure.  It’s central to normally functioning academia (in the sense of job, grant and article rejections), but it’s far more relevant nowadays to the effort to leave the academy.  Not getting the coveted job is still widely considered a “failure” and academics who have their identity wrapped up in academic achievement so easily take on the identity of “failure” – as in, I’M a failure – in the face of not getting an academic job, and deciding to depart for other career directions. How are you stuck in the quagmire by attaching narratives of the past  – like bungie cords pulling you backward – and how do you break free?  Kel and Karen offer some methods to move beyond these quagmire of failure feelings:  1) Spend time with your grief, and 2) stop expecting an apology (because the university will never give you one). As you do this, you learn to just pause, sit, stop striving, process your feelings of fear, rage, bitterness, and grief, identify the story you’re attached to, recognize where firm ground actually lies, and crawl forward one tiny step. *Like the new Art of Leaving program, which starts this month!  And the Professor Is Out private FB group.)
