Best Of Transition: PhD Jobs & Job Search Strategies, June 6th, 2020
Every week, we at Cheeky Scientist scour the Internet for the best articles on topics that help in the search for PhD jobs in industry.
Our two consultants independently search for the most informative articles in the categories of networking, CVs/resumes, interviews, transferable skills, academic blues, industry positions, and business acumen.
Our consultants vote on a top article for each category and a top overall article for the week – if it’s a recent article that can help readers find and acquire PhD jobs, then we want to include it in this weekly digest.
So without further delay, here are…
