After finishing your PhD, it may be challenging to decide which career path to follow. Industry or Academia?
The title of this video may seem a little daunting. Before you set sail on your research journey, however, you should know how the wind blows. If you know what’s waiting for you over the horizon, you can prepare for it. Before it happens.
As a young and aspiring researcher, know the realities of what lies ahead. Think about the competition. The overwhelming amount of data. And the right resources and tools you’ll need to build, and keep afloat, a successful research career.
Before you begin your journey, though, you have to survive the early stages of becoming a researcher. As the video points out, the reality is that only a small percentage of researchers complete their careers. If you survive this first wave, you’re then faced with some overpowering facts.
