My advice would be to keep looking at job adverts. Because some employers will still take you to teach something different from what your certificates show :)

I have seen many examples already.

You have creativity, business acumen, bring all those qualities with you. Keep your options open.

I am so sorry about your phd viva. I think you could still be in shock. Give yourself time to recover, and then start working on the revisions. It will get easier the second time. I'm sure your supervisors will also want you to pass. Get them involved in your revisions, schedule more meetings with them, set manageable deadlines to meet up or show them your work.

I have great respect for people who want to do PGCE. I wouldn't be able to handle teaching schoolkids. Wishing you the very best :)

I forgot to add - I have 2 friends who quit their phds. The first quit after less than a year. Funding ran out for the second, he could not finish, he had a family to support. Both now have jobs.

I am sorry to hear that it has been difficult for you. Some people who do interviews haven't a clue what the other person is thinking. You need to build up your confidence again. Find a way to explain why you quit. Don't give up looking for a job.

can someone help to explain this to me --
this sentence "its worth noting that the association between head circumference and 3MS in the current study remained statistically significant after adjustment for IQ"
"after adjustment, head circumference was not statistically significant with all cognitive outcomes"

What does "adjustment" here mean? did they change the values or??

thanks

Yes you can ask your second coder to recode. How did u base your calculations, was it for the 15% only? I had two second coders who looked at all mydata and then I removed outliers and got higher kappa values. Maybe someone else can give better suggestions

hi gary you have good career prospects but where you are, anything can happen. I see people with permanent jobs being made redundant. If you do that phd, assuming everything is ok, by the time you defend, you'll still only be 29 or 30 at the most and that is plenty of time for career. You have plenty of time and lots of battery! the phd is a good idea.

I'm sorry I am unable to offer advice on your study plan. I think you shouldn't focus too much on why your application was rejected!

I have a friend with three masters degrees; another with two masters degrees. The former did her 3rd masters because the amount of scholarship pay out was large (she wanted to save a huge portion of it to renovate her house). The latter did the 2nd master because he couldn't get a job. He really enjoyed going on both masters. Two happy friends.

If you really want to do a phd and you think another master will help you towards it AND you have the energy for it, yes go for it! At 28 the world is your oyster! You are still young plenty of opportunity out there for you. As for marriage, get married when you feel it is right for you not because someone is telling you about your eggs and basket etc.

good luck!!! post back n let us know how you get on

I think you should choose after you have received your post-doc offers. When you receive your offers, things will be clearer -- big name, small name, researchers reputation etc.

Then you can choose where to go.

hi, hope you are ok. Things will change between bestfriends because of different life paths. But you will always have that special bond because you were already bestfriends before anything else changed!

I can share with you, that things will get better in time. In my own experience, I don't have much to say to my before-phd-day bestfriends but when we do get together, we do have a lot to talk about. Another thing is if you don't meet that frequently, you will have more to say to each other when you meet up.

Don't worry about growing distant from your bestfriends.

Also you will find new friends, new bestfriends. I have found one or two very special people from this forum! they are my bestfriends now even though we have not met face to face. They are the ones, my current bestfriends, I write to when I need help, or when I have good news etc. And my before-phd-day bestfriends will always be my bestfriends whenever we can meet again.

:-)

hi Smilinghippo sorry to hear about your experience and it is brave of you to choose to walk away. Out of curiosity, can I ask - would you be looking to do a phd somewhere else?
