GSR Episode 24: Chris Humphrey, DPhil, Medieval Studies
by

Chris Humphrey received a DPhil in Medieval Studies from the University of York in 1997. He spent the next three years as a postdoc at York, then transitioned into industry with an e-learning company before becoming a project manager in financial services at the socially responsible Triodos Bank. He also founded the popular career blog, Jobs on Toast, which helps PhDs successfully market themselves for careers in business, charities, industry and government. In this podcast, Chris goes over his experience in grad school, discusses what made him initially consider a "plan B," and how "plan B" became plan A. As an expert in careers and professional development, he also offers very useful advice for grads considering industry careers.
