Holding onto the best parts of grad school

September 18, 2017

Is it possible to keep the best parts of grad school after entering the “real world?” Patrick Bigsby answers with a resounding “yes” before discussing how graduates can hold onto these benefits. To begin, the author recommends that former grad students continue reading academia-centric publications, which unlike academic publications are often freely accessible and keep one connected to the academic world. Bigsby also recommends writing about one's experience in academia, either in a blog or for a publication to share best practices, inspire students, and have conversations they wish had been happening when they were in school. Inside Higher Ed
