Lyapunov Posted November 18, 2013 Share Posted November 18, 2013 Hi Everyone, I graduated in Spring this year, and started work as a full-time around mid-June. Therefore, its been about 5 months since I've joined my present workplace. I am planning to apply to doctoral programs for the Fall of 2014, and am in the process of preparing my SoP. I was wondering if I should mention my current job in the SoP, since its not directly related to the topic in which I wish to pursue my PhD. Since I've just joined the company, there isn't much I can talk about except discussing some minor details, that are not relevant to the topic of my future research. I'd rather write more about my old research in the limited space I have. But I don't want to leave that out only to find out, that mentioning your present status in the SoP is a must. Therefore, will not mentioning my job make the admissions committee feel that I'm trying to avoid talking about my job? Or that I'm thinking about a PhD because I'm unhappy/ unable to perform well at the job? Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
