Hey all! I majored in journalism and spent a couple years as a reporter before pivoting into PR/comms. I’ve been in this career for almost 5 years now, but have been at smaller orgs with little grasp of comms/PR the whole time. I’ve had some successes, but no real mentoring. It’s mostly been me playing around with trial and error. Lately I’m feeling stagnant! I could use tips on getting noticed by more comms savvy companies where I could really learn the trade.

I am currently a year from finishing my PhD and was looking at VC's as a career path because I like to do meta-analysis of different climate change techs. I networked with VCs and one of them was receptive but didn't have the budget currently for a full time hire. They said they'd be interested in working with me to do a research paper over the coming semester, and was wondering if I could leverage this into a full time offer?

Is a white paper with a VC going to be attractive on my CV?

By what multiple did you improve (or lose) your skills year over year though your career? Wholly subjective, of course.

Format example:

Yr 1-2: x3.2 (still learned a ton, worth >3 of me from year before)
Yr 2-3: x1.2 (learned a little)
Yr 3-4: x0.6 (burnt out, worth like half of year prior)
