Here’s one of the most important tips to know: As a recent PhD graduate, you can stop getting rejected by the jobs to which you apply by emphasizing more than just your credentials. You should never devalue or overinflate your education; however, you should be sure to convey your hard skills and work experience. Don’t let those three letters make you look like a one-trick pony. Sell your PhD as part of the larger reason why you are a well-rounded candidate.
You can also improve your chances of getting a job by being proactive in the search process. After sending out your resume, submitting an application, or making connections at a networking event, follow up with your contacts in a timely fashion. Don’t wait for them to reach out to you.
