A doctorate degree can take you anywhere. You can work in many areas including social enterprise businesses, start-ups, non-profits, academia or industries you never thought about for a career. You can be a researcher, scholar-practitioner, academic, scientist, consultant, or social entrepreneur. A yearly event called “What Can You Be with a PhD” (WCUB) Career Symposium at New York University can help you explore your career options. And according to the blog, it’s the “largest career symposium” in the country. The event was organized by the NYU School of Medicine Postdoctoral Affairs Office.

Welcome! Doctor Tales is a new blog to help doctoral students succeed during and beyond their academic journeys. We are Dr. Bessie DiDomenica (PhD) and Dr. Patricia Mason (DBA), two doctors who took the journey. We recently earned our doctoral degrees and offer our strategies for other doctoral candidates to succeed.
We also embrace our new roles as scholar-practitioners, and encourage others to take their education beyond the classroom.
