Benefits to having a PhD include prestige, the right to be viewed as an expert and authority, and the ability to apply for high-level jobs. The PhD signals advanced research skills and qualification to teach at the university level. Living in this age of information and technology, within a globalizing economy, means that the need for more education and specialization is much higher than in the past.
so, what can I do for my bad data then? my supervisor is very useless and I have to do the whole thing. I 8767 m in the verge of depression right now. I did perform my main objective (to perform and execute a method) but the results do not look good. What can you advise me then? thanks so much
A job in academia has always been the alternative one for me as having a teaching career has never sounded that appealing to me. I was looking for a job in research and development department in many companies after graduated my first degree (MEng) and couldn 8767 t find one that would even consider with the MEng degree that I have. I would need at least a Masters (by research) degree just to make myself eligible to apply for the job. So I thought I might as well do a PhD if I 8767 m getting a research degree. And now fast approaching the finish line, I 8767 m still not interested in looking for a job in academia when I finally completed my PhD. In fact, I can 8767 t wait to finish and leave this place!
Chances are, there is some form of media that addresses your area of expertise, whether it is television, radio, newspaper, magazine, academic journal, or even a blog.

Of course, anyone is free to try their hand at writing a novel, but PhDs are especially well suited to a writing career given the extensive experience throughout the dissertation process.
I am in the third year of my phD. But i feel like that i am not progressing as I dont get any feed back or any advice from my guide. I had to call, send msgs always to remind to reply to my msgs. I live far and need a Guide to say something step by step. But i am disappointed. I have publshed few papers on the subject. Now that prepared questionnaire to send out. Now my guide after so many mals, asking me what varieties of ststistics i would use, how many tables i would prepare independent variable and dependant variable Believe me My head will explode soon As i have no idea what so ever on all these. Just got stuck and worried
Your post really resonated with me. I have a rather unsupportive supervisor and am at the point where I feel morally obliged to continue, otherwise I 8767 ve wasted 9 years and a lot of time and money. I see this post was written in August how are you going now?
