Judit Gonzalez’s Story
It’s been about a year since I joined Cheeky Scientist during my final PhD year and started attending classes and making all the suggested LinkedIn changes and networking. I had 0 idea what kind of job I wanted and had the extra hurdle of looking for US jobs as a non-citizen. I graduated with my PhD in August and stayed on as a Postdoc so I could stay on OPT status, and now next week is my last week in academia!! I am super happy to share that after 66 applications, many rejections, a lot of ghosting, and a few final round interviews resulting in more rejection, I finally received 2 different job offers at once last month!! I will starting as a Solutions Engineer at Geospatial software company in 1 week! I am super grateful for all the help I received on this platform, anytime I had doubts on how to structure my resume, update my LinkedIn profile, reply to tricky company emails, navigate negotiations, etc. Thank you very much to everyone for your help and support! I am beyond excited to start this new stage in my professional career. Judit
