Just looking for some advice. I have been considering doing a PhD since completing my bachelors in 2013. At the time I decided against this as I wanted to get on the career ladder. Instead I went on to do a Masters in HRM 2 years later. At that time I once again considered doing a PhD, then decided not to and instead focus on my career and build a bit more experience in HR. In the last couple of years I have done a further postgraduate course and just completed a Masters in Employment Law, hoping to dampen the PhD urge. However, the urge to do a PhD has reared its head once more. I really enjoyed the research element in my coursework and dissertations. A number of previous lecturers have also suggested that I pursue a PhD. Additionally, I feel after a number of years’ experience in HR, I have gained a more solid grounding in theoretical and practical HR. I am not sure if a career in academia is something I want pursue? Difficult to know without experience. I enjoy learning, researching and writing. However, it would not be financially feasible for me to do the PhD full-time. Has anyone else done a part-time PhD while working full-time? How did you find the workload? Is it a crazy idea?
