Tim Cavnar, Ph.D.

PhD Career Coach
University of Michigan

As a Ph.D. Career Coach, I specialize in empowering Ph.D. students across diverse fields to successfully transition into non-faculty careers. I live for the “Aha” moment when a student crafts the perfect resume bullet point, discovers a new opportunity, or feels empowered. I’m excited to support you on every step of the journey, from brainstorming job options to acing interviews and negotiating job offers. With a doctorate in Second Language Acquisition from UW-Madison, I bring a linguist’s fascination with language to my coaching, ensuring effective communication in every aspect of your job search. Beyond my professional life, I enjoy reading horror novels, doing projects with my 3-year-old son, and learning about sound design and recording.
