：我希望他不是你研究生院的导师! 如果你在研究生院的导师不支持你，那么我认为你应该坦率地谈谈你的职业目标和你关心的问题。研究生导师和学生之间意见不一致的情况并非闻所未闻，但这就像其他任何关系一样——有时(大多数时候)你可以解决分歧，但有时你却不能。如果你们的研究兴趣分歧太大，有时这种关系就行不通了。(这并不意味着你们俩都是糟糕的研究人员，只是在这种情况下不适合对方罢了。)然而，如果你谈论的是一位工作上的主管，而你现在在职，即将进入研究生院，那么我认为你也应该谈论你的学位可能会给你的工作带来什么好处。如果这是一个领域,你想继续在你获得学位后工作, 那么你应该与你的上司讨论为什么你认为这个学位是很重要,它是如何帮助你专业,反过来,它将如何帮助你日后的工作。I hope that’s not your supervisor in graduate school! If your supervisor/mentor/advisor in graduate school isn’t supportive, then I think you should have a frank talk about your professional goals and your concerns. It isn’t unheard of for a graduate school advisor and a student not to see eye-to-eye, but it’s just like any other relationship-- sometimes (most of the time) you can work through the differences, but sometimes you can’t. If your research interests diverge too much, sometimes the relationship just won’t work. (That doesn’t make either of you bad researchers, but just not suited for each other in this situation.)However, if you are talking about a work supervisor, and you are working and going to graduate school, then I think you should also talk about how your degree might benefit what you are doing at work. If this is a field that you want to continue working in after you obtain your degree, then you should share with your supervisor why you think this degree is important, how it is going to help you professionally, and then, in turn, how it is going to help the people you are working with.
