It is not a common fact that most non-traditional doctoral students will not get their academic job of their dreams, its more of a common fear. This fear relates to how the current non-traditional doctoral student is viewed compared to the traditional student in ways that give the university or college advantages upon employment. For years, non-traditional doctoral students have tried ways of preparing themselves in ways to give them an advantage over traditional doctoral students. In these attempts, some have made the conversion successful and some have not. Based on the results of the highest impacting factors that attest this process, some basic practices have been announced to help reassure these students.

With the overgrowing community of non-traditional students increasing every year, there is a direct need for these soon to be graduates in the higher educational workplace. The difference that these non-traditional students have compared to traditional graduates is that they have the ability to create a new avenue for professional practices, new relations and establish valuable connections to better the ways of what makes them stand out. These practices are to be used in several different academic needs such that these doctoral students can provide ideas, plans, and processes for US colleges and universities.

This paper serves as a supplementary item that will assist non-traditional doctoral students in their academic career endeavors and pursuits. The significance of this paper will assist many doctoral students in ways to creatively match themselves up to doctoral students of traditional universities and colleges. With this, the process that these doctoral students take will be applicable marketing the needs that fit into the nature and value of the higher education department.
