About Me

This Blog Came To Life Many, Many Years Ago...

…out of a deep need to share what I learned about the world in the process of studying, traveling, and building my career. I started the blog as a sophomore student at the University of Warsaw back in 2006. I used to write in Polish back then, and I only moved to English in 2015.

I have always had a deep interest in both people and technological innovation. This is also why I chose to pursue a PhD in Computational Neuroscience (graduated in 2020). Today, I’m focused on learning about the job market and helping professionals and teams self-navigate, build value, and subvert all the expectations. This blog documents my personal journey as a career and business advisor, but also, my progress as a writer!

My Mission

My dream is to launch my own career center slash a little startup accelerator. I would like to buy a huge house in a countryside and convert it into an intelligent house full of cool facilities and always full of intelligent, driven, positive people who have mindset set for professional and personal growth. I wrote more about where I am coming from and how I would like to run this place in the article “Dreamers Gonna Dream. On Personal Goals Baked During the Pandemic.” on this blog.

Important: I might invest my earnings but I never invest donations; it is too much responsibility to risk those funds. I put them all aside and stack them for the cause.

Perhaps instead of donation, you can invest in some life-changing content or a course that I prepared? That’s even better! In that case, you are most welcome to browse through my books and other products and services!

My first creation, the book entitled:

What Is out There For Me? The Landscape of Post-PhD Career Tracks

is out on Amazon! I have put a lot of heart into this book. The purpose of this book is to give you an overview of what you are capable (and might not even think of!) after completing a PhD, and a vista of directions you might consider to develop a happy, fulfilling professional life. It explores not only the scope of high-level employment in which PhDs usually excel, but also provides broad descriptions of the tribes that have formed in the job market and their characteristic behaviors.

The book is now available as Kindle ebook, paperback, and PDF. Enjoy—and please leave your review if you enjoy this content and feel that it helped you career-wise!

My second book entitled:

The Longest Journey: The Ultimate Guide To Self-Navigation In the Job Market”

is coming up in a few months! The book touches topics such as:

  • How is the job market structured and why did it evolve this way?
  • For what reasons do most people change jobs these days? What are the good strategies?
  • What are the tribes in the job market? How do they work and how to recognize where you belong?
  • How do people who self-navigate well think and make decisions?
  • How to make sure that you develop your potential to the fullest?
  • How to stay on top of the job market?
  • How to stay forever young on your mind?
