I have worked for over ten years in higher education. I served as Assistant Professor of French and Francophone Studies at UNC, Chapel Hill for seven years where I coordinated the job search training process for masters and doctoral programs.
As a former consultant for Kenan-Flagler Business School and the Gabelli School of Business, I have reviewed thousands of resumes and cover letters, and interviewed hundreds of mid-career professionals across a wide variety of functions in the private sector.
My insight into the synergies between academia and private industry, combined with my knack for helping people put their best foot forward, inspired me to launch Academic EQ to help PhDs present their competitive advantage on paper and in-person on the non-academic job market. I hold an M.A from McGill University and a Ph.D. from New York University.
I used the interview techniques Philippe introduced me to, and my confidence during job interviews has literally skyrocketed. It's the first time in five months that an interviewer really praised me for my interviewing skills, and I got a call back! Philippe’s skills, patience, and sense of humor have really helped me through this nerve-racking process!
You really boosted my confidence during the entire process. Thanks for the incredibly positive impact you had on my search. Thank you!
Navigating the altac job search can be very intimidating, and Philippe provided exactly what I needed to get started. On top of answering my numerous questions (sorry!), Philippe was always extremely proactive and brimming with great ideas.
Philippe is very knowledgeable. He showed me how easy it is to capitalize on my past experience
