Transition Q & A: Will Deyamport, III

Dr. Jennifer Polk runs From PhD to Life, a site dedicated to assisting doctoral students with the transition from academia to the real-world. Part of a feature of her site, Jennifer does Q & A series with folks who have doctorates, but have decided to pursue careers outside of academia. As you can tell from the title of this post, I am one of the folks included in the series.
Here is a sample of my Q & A on From Phd to Life:
What did you hope for in terms of employment as you completed your PhD?
Originally, I had hopes of becoming a professor and one day leading a digital learning center or institute at a university. That all changed once I started doing the research on adjunct pay and benefits. (There are no benefits.) I soon realized that becoming a university professor wasn’t in the cards for me. Especially because I have this terrible habit of liking to eat and having a place to live.
