Frequently asked questions

Isn't it really unhealthy to dwell on career outcomes that didn't happen?

No. Mourning is a healthy, existentially urgent human process. What's unhealthy is the way academia expects people to face loss in silence.

Is this site only for unemployed PhDs?

Not at all. Academia rejects and excludes people at all levels and in all kinds of positions.
