UCB Ph.D. & Her Career as a Realtor

Dr. Marilyn GarciaMarilyn Garcia, Ph.D.

Here at the GradPost, we try to save our dear readers time by scouring the inter-webs for content relevant to our grad community at UCSB. Gradhacker is a relatively new and earnest blog dedicated to helping all of us to be more productive. The blog took a surprising (and, we think wonderful) turn by writing up a great interview. We meet a PhD who left the academy to serve as a real estate professional. The blog gives the interview the ink and analysis only possible in this new media world. 

Grad Hacker introduces us to Marilyn Garcia in a two-part post. We appreciated this and hope you'll enjoy it.

From the article.

"That gets to the heart of what I learned from talking to Marilyn, she switched from academic economics to real estate because she likes being a realtor. She has fun doing it."  

Know any UCSB grads who have fled the academy? Are they happy? How can we use our skills from academia in other work contexts? Does it make sense to finish even when we know we plan to work as a river guide, bond trader, or electrician?
