The Graduate School has purchased a subscription to the Versatile Ph.D., a web-based resource that helps graduate students explore how to pursue non-academic career options. You must access this resource through Ohio State’s authentication page, which will lead you to an internal Graduate School webpage. To start this process, go to http://go.osu.edu/VersatilePhD where you will be prompted to authenticate that you are a member of the Ohio State graduate community.
History of The Versatile Ph.D.
Founded by Paula Chambers, a Ph.D. alum in English from Ohio State, The Versatile Ph.D. is a web-based resource that provides a confidential community for graduate students to network and to explore resources relevant to this type of career exploration. The key concept is versatility: the ability to apply skills and interests in a wide variety of careers, so that Ph.Ds. have options both in and out of academe.
