Hear Vincent Genest’s Story
During my PhD I considered doing something else, but my main challenge was that I didn’t know what I could do. So I was always in this mindset of trying to list what I could do with these exact skills that I learned as a PhD student, and the only thing I could come up with was postdoc. So I really failed to see any options moving forward. I was lucky enough to have a great postdoc, but when I started working more on my own I realized that I wasn’t happy as a postdoc and this was not what I wanted to do in my future life. Once I joined the Association, I really shifted my mindset. It was no longer about what can I do with the skills that I have right now, but rather what do I want to do, and then I’ll just frame my approach towards what I want to do. Just this little change in mindset really made the difference.
