I talk about personal branding for PhDs a lot because it was my ticket to transitioning from academia into a non-academic role.
So imagine my delight when this week’s guest, Dr. Guadalupe Manrique-Maldonado shared with me that my videos on leveraging your skills and personal brand to land a non-academic career played a key role in helping her leave her job in academic research to become a science writer!
Guadalupe has a PhD in Neuropharmacology from Mexico.
In this interview, we talk about:
- The videos on The Bold PhD YouTube channel that helped her re-think her career trajectory
- How building her personal brand was pivotal in her academic-non-academic transition
- What new and aspiring science writers and medical communicators can do to break into the field.
If you’re new to medical writing and would like a primer on what you can do to break into medical writing, consider my 90-minute class on breaking into medical writing.
In addition, you may check out these books on how to make a living as a writer.
