Alternative Careers in Science by Cynthia Robbins-Roth
Book DescriptionMany science students find themselves in the midst of graduate school or sitting at a lab bench, and realize that they hate lab work! Even worse is realizing that they may love science, but science (at least academic science) is not providing many job opportunities these days. What's a poor researcher to do! This book gives first-hand descriptions of the evolution of a band of hardy scientists out of the lab and into just about every career you can imagine. Researchers from every branch of science found their way into finance, public relations, consulting, business development, journalism, and more - and thrived there! Each author tells their personal story, including descriptions of their career path, a typical day, where to find information on their job, opportunities to career growth, and more. This is a must-read for every science major, and everyone who is looking for a way to break out of their career rut. It offers an insider's look at the wide range of job opportunities for scientists yearning to leave the lab. It contains first-person stories from researchers who successfully made the leap from science into finance, journalism, law, public policy, and more; and offers tips on how to track down and get that job in a new industry. It includes typical day scenarios for each career track, and a list of resources (websites, associations, etc.) to help you in your search. Completely revised, this latest edition includes six entirely new chapters.
