annoyed Posted June 10, 2014 Share Posted June 10, 2014 Has anyone tried to get a job while still in a PhD program? I have an assistantship, but I'd like to live a little better and I think I can handle more work. So I've been looking for a full-time job the last couple months. I've gotten no responses even though I think I have a strong resume. The only problem I can think of is that companies don't want to hire someone currently working on a PhD. They think I won't have time or they think I'll quit as soon as I graduate. I'm guessing there might be confidentiality issues with some of them too. It's quiet angering being ignored for jobs I'm certain I'd at least get an interview for. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
