Bootcamp for Post-Academic Job Seekers | Lilli Research Group
"I was nervous at first to reach out and work with Maren because I was admitting to myself that the TT career wasn't something I wanted.
After successfully receiving postdoc and TT offers, I did what I should have done two years earlier and hired Maren.
What surprised me most was how empowering and fun it is to repackage yourself as a PhD outside of academia.
It's worth the hard work you'll put in with Maren because you'll gain an advocate, colleague, and friend!
I'd do the bootcamp all over again and plan to take refreshers, she's amazing.
If you feel dissatisfied or stuck in the TT career I urge you to consider working with Maren because regardless of your eventual decision to stay or go, it'll be an empowered and informed one.
"I highly recommend Maren Wood
as a professional development coach for recent PhD's, like me, who need help navigating the job world outside of the ivory tower-or inside the tower.
Working with Maren
was a delight.
has been an exceptional help to me during the sometimes difficult transition from academia to other professional realms.
provides calm, clear, and reassuring guidance; creates tangible goals and timelines; and lends a realistic perspective to this weird journey.
I highly recommend her
