It’s not just about the thesis…

by on July 28, 2014

Here’s food for thought – should we really be spending so much time writing, asks the Thesis Whisperer:

“…What I didn’t realise all those times I was ‘too busy writing’ was that doing a PhD is one of those extremely rare opportunities in a busy adult life you get to concentrate on your own professional development. Consistently placing writing above other kinds of PhD activity is undergraduate thinking. I thought assessment happened when examiners read my thesis.

But the real assessment happens when someone reads your CV.”
