Career Information

Which Career Path is Right for You?

It’s certainly difficult to tell what career would make you happy if you don’t know what each career actually entails.  For this reason, we cover many of the options available to PhDs including opportunities in the fields of:

Academia
Government
Sales
Consulting
Law
Technology Transfer
Entrepreneurship
Pharma/Biotech
Venture Capital
Finance
Public Policy
Writing

Within each category, we attempt to cover all of the most important information such as possible entry points, application process, progression/promotions, expected work hours, compensation, and exit options.  Of course, all numbers are averages and experiences may differ from one firm to another within the same job description, but this information should prove useful when trying to compare one career path to another in terms of general expectations.
