Making the leap from academia to industry

Posted on Updated on

leap

Thinking about how your PhD can be transferred to industry?  Check out this interesting blog post from IT firm Scott Logic.  It’s great to hear how the transferable skills, especially problem solving, gained from PhD research are valued; and that time spent in academia from an industry perspective is viewed so positively.

Interested in finding out more about how your research skills can be used in industry?  Have a look at the Career Mentoring programme for the opportunity to be paired with a mentor working in industry to discuss career options and find out more about career opportunities within an industry setting.
