I think I am a hard-working graduate student, but not a successful one, because I failed my PhD qualify exam and have to leave my school soon. There won't be a master degree for me, because I have received it a few years ago. I am now looking for a job using my master degree (my area is applied math and statistics, and I am looking for a statistician position, such as biostatistician in hospital or school or research organization), and was wondering how to describe that during my job hunting? Is it bad to not mention that in resume or interview?
- In the resume, is it good to not list the Phd student experience in my "Education", but still list my projects done during my Phd study in my "Experience"? If I have to list it under "Education", how shall I describe that?
- In the cover letter, how shall I describe my situation?
- If I am lucky to have an interview, what are some good ways to explain or describe the reason of not continuing PhD?
