Hey there! I am Dr. Gertrude Nonterah and I started The Bold PhD to help PhDs uncover their superpowers, build personal brands and land non-academic careers that pay them WELL.

I graduated with my PhD in Microbiology and Immunology in 2015.

I learned very quickly that a career in academia was not for me and this also began my frustration with trying to find a job outside academia where I could use my skills. I share part of why I left academia in the video below.

Nowadays, I happily work as a professional in medical communications.

So how do you get started around here?
