PhD, an abbreviation for Doctor of Philosophy, is an undergraduate or technical degree awarded on the basis of comprehensive study in a selected area by universities and colleges upon submission of a thesis or dissertation.

In general, the highest degree that a student can obtain is a PhD. This infographic gives you a few techniques for working towards your PhD, courtesy of IIM Udaipur '.

It's no secret that a meager fee is charged to PhD students and postdocs, often not quite as much as the local minimum wage. While a minority of graduate students have undoubtedly already sought side income to offset their stipends / salaries, e.g. by part-time work, moonlighting, or strange jobs, earning money online or making money at home has only become easy in recent years. Join the 'side hustle.' After the Great Recession, the word erupted in popularity along with the 'gig economy.' Modern side hustles' versatility has made it possible for students and postdocs to match their income-generating practices into their busy study schedules.

This paper discusses whether a graduate student or postdoc would like to side hustle, if their university / institution supports it, examples of actual side hustles kept by PhDs, how to better handle side profits, and suggestions from PhDs with active side hustles.

Increase Benefit

Your full-time (or more) pursuit is intended to be completing your PhD during graduate school or receiving further experience as a postdoc. Study is life, huh? Unfortunately, as well as a normal full-time job, the jobs don't pay close everywhere.

For a PhD student or postdoc, the best case scenario is that you will be paid enough to support yourself without making drastic lifestyle changes, i.e., living in a van. However, for a single entity with no dependents, there are plenty of programs and colleges that do not even reach that low standard. The low stipend or wage is almost definitely insufficient for a graduate student or postdoc with a dependent partner (e.g., a foreign trainee) or children.

In order to be able to survive beyond their means, graduate students nearly often turn first to reducing their living expenses. They know that their coursework, study, and teaching are meant to devote the lion's share of their weekly resources. But others earn cash on the side to stop getting (further) into debt while their backs are against the wall.

Career-Experiences Progressing

Any postdocs and graduate students are inspired not by a lack of money but rather by a lack of realistic job planning to side hustle.

What are the professions for which a PhD or postdoc trains you? The vast majority of PhDs are not promoted for tenure-track faculty jobs these days. Many colleges have accepted this and placed in place programs to help PhDs move out of academia (my alma mater, Duke University, and in particular the Pratt School of Engineering, are innovating in this area), while others are still catching up. (Time to avoid naming the jobs most PhDs get "alternative", right?)

PhDs, of course, have plenty of transferable talents that can be put to use in a wide range of careers, but it is nevertheless tough to find a job.

A carefully picked side hustle (or even voluntary work) will help a PhD grow her resume / CV and network to stand out from the other candidates for a PhD. A side hustle will show you new talents, give you the chance to show the abilities you already have, and introduce you to people who will help your career path.

What differentiates this book?

Many books on this topic attempt to over-simplify a sequence of pre-defined steps in the PhD method. It's not working. The diversity and sophistication of research projects, not to mention the variations in PhD students' finances and personal situations, ensures that any case can never be properly covered by any fixed method.

Instead, in various cases, this book describes basic concepts that can be modified and implemented. It recognizes the difficulty of analysis and writing and that, rather than executing a set schedule or timetable, the secret to success is to adapt effectively to unexpected circumstances.
