I was talking to a PhD I've been mentoring and who just got hired and wanted to share their story. They were able to get a compensation package for an industry job that even surprised me. If you're considering a career in industry, it's important to leverage the unique economic environment we are in to not only get a 32% higher salary offer (this is the new, trending average I explain in the video) but to also get the additional benefits that other professional-level employees are now getting. Watch the video above and if you're ready, book a transition call with my team and I below.
