#PhD  and #Gradschool Facts vs. Myths!
Nothing about the PhD process educates you on how to find a non-academic job, apply your skills, or sell yourself to employers.

Story
Tagline
Science Blogger, PhD Advice, Scientist, Internet Entrepreneur, Sales Professional, Author/Writer, Product Manager, and Web Developer.
Introduction

Founder of TheGradStudentWay: PhD Advice, Graduate School Professional Development, Alternative PhD Careers, and Everything In-Between. Currently working in Life Sciences Biotech Industry.

Bragging rights
With the help of Science Careers Magazine and Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News, Dr. Raver has a passion to help other graduate students and post-docs with career counseling. The lack of Professional Development within a graduate school is one reason why he decided to create and launch The Grad Student Way. In addition, he felt compelled to make others aware of graduate school hardships (prospective or current students) and provide solutions, advice, and insights. Dr. Raver’s hope is that whatever stage you are at in your career, that you will find this blog and website useful. Feel free to contact for any resume, grad school, or career advice.
