Translating our Jobs

This month's episode discusses how we explain our complex and unique jobs to our friends, family, and community. Over our first year, we have learned many misconceptions about our jobs as graduate students in a research-focused program. We discuss how we work around common misconceptions and how we explain what we do. Our insight could be helpful for anyone curious about graduate school to keep in mind what we actually do as opposed to what it seems like we do.
