Getting your dream job

Your industry-friendly profile

The Challenge

University Careers Services don’t help PhDs transition from academia to industry because they focus on undergraduates. 

So millions of PhDs are left asking the same questions…

  • Which jobs best fit my skills?​

  • Which of my skills are most relevant to employers?

  • How best to communicate my academic record?

  • What should I include on my CV?​​

  • How best to grow my professional network?

What is Smart Tribe?

We are a unique community of PhD students, PhD holders and industry experts. In other words, everyone you need to help you transition from academy to industry. 

We built Smart Tribe because we want to see more scientific thinking in companies.
