In this episode, we discuss how to tell your story of leaving academia. The age-old advice of staying positive about why you left your previous position can be difficult—especially because academia is held up as this ideal position. We talk a bit about how we handled or are handling telling this story through our cover letters and CVs. Telling this story isn’t only about spinning it as positive—in many cases it is positive.
Don’t feel like you’re not doing enough. Sometimes doing more is not necessarily better. -@Doctor_PMS
