Versatile PhD

Versatile PhD (VPhD) is a web-based resource that helps graduate students, ABDs, and PhD students investigate and pursue careers beyond academia. Through the VPhD site you can join a thriving, supportive, web-based community, and dialog with other "Versatile PhDs" both inside and outside of the academy.  Through a joint initiative with the Harpur College of Arts and Sciences and the Fleishman Center for Career and Professional Development, Binghamton is an institutional subscriber, providing our graduate students with full access to the VPhD resources, including:

  • Hiring Success Stories
  • Career Autobiographies
  • Panel Discussions
