Description: Panelists address decision-making by PhDs who pursue non-tenure-track jobs after graduate school or positions with poor fit. Participants’ presentations address stages and perspectives such as creating a balanced portfolio while in school, deciding to pursue positions off the tenure track, assessing the factors for dual-career decision-making, choosing a writing career rather than a full professor’s, and how we can understand our quit lit as positive chick lit.
