By: Isaiah Hankel, PhD

As a PhD, you can’t afford to ignore the facts. Things are NOT getting better in academia. The number of tenured professors at universities is steadily declining. Even worse, a large portion of non-tenure-track professors live below the poverty line. Yet, reports show that PhDs in the Life Science Industry (not in academia) earn more average income than those employed in other sectors of the economy. The problem is not that research isn't needed anymore. Research and research scientists are in high demand. The problem is academia. It’s time to start leveraging your skills to get the research job (and income) you deserve. Here are 5 things to keep in mind when pursuing a career as an industry research scientist.

5 Personality Types To Avoid At Your Next PhD Networking Event

5 Personality Types To Avoid At Your Next PhD Networking Event

By: Todd Nolan

Networking correctly is not easy. If you’re networking correctly, you’re investing your time and energy into developing long-term professional relationships. Networking takes work. It takes effort and engagement. You can’t merely show up to an event, throw a few business cards at people, and expect to get a strong job referral. Instead, you have to show up, build rapport, and offer value even when you feel like you have nothing to offer. The worst thing you can do is show up to an event and beg for connections, cling onto one person the whole night, or check your phone repeatedly. You should not only avoid these people at your next networking event, you should also ensure that you don’t become one of them. Here are five people NOT to turn into at your next networking event.

5 Tips To Guide PhDs In Preparing To Pass Their First Industry Interview

By: Janay Cody

Having a PhD does not guarantee you an industry job. Too many graduate students fall into the trap of talking about their specific research niche when networking and interviewing for non-academic careers. They feel their strong academic record and long list of publications will get them the industry position they want. This is why it's so easy for biotech and biopharma hiring managers to glaze over your industry resume and say you lack real work experience. It's your job to show them how your academic experiences have prepared you for industry (even though they likely have not).

Not only that, you need to show them you are more qualified than other job candidates. Here's how.
