Hidden Opportunities in Tech for Social Sciences Graduates With Victoria Wobber

This week, I’m sharing with you a conversation about a side of the post-PhD experience that is kind of a blind spot for me – the place of social science graduates in the tech space.

To talk about this, I had the pleasure of having a conversation with Victoria (Tory) Wobber, growth and leadership coach and consultant.

While you’re here, I’ll take the opportunity to announce that Papa PhD has joined the  Podcast 2.0 initiative and is now set up to receive boosts from you, the listener! A boost is a value for value (V4V)  contribution in Satoshis (or Sats), the smallest existing Bitcoin denomination.

All received boosts will get a shoutout on the show, in appreciation for your support.

Please check out the Fountain Podcast App that supports Podcast 2.0 initiatives and boost the show .

Also, I’d love to get to know you better. If you have 60 seconds please fill out the listener survey in this link.  Donate to the show and Support this podcast.

Dr. Victoria (Tory) Wobber received her PhD in Human Evolutionary Biology in 2012 and secured a role as a data scientist at Facebook in 2013. She now runs her own business as a career and leadership coach.

Tory has three degrees from Harvard, worked at Facebook and Google, and developed the Academic Exit framework after making the transition from academia to industry herself and coaching more than 50 people through that same transition.

Thank you, Tory Wobber!
