Category: Dissertation/ThesisOptions other than academic after PhD

Hi! I am looking for non-academic career options after PhD. After being in this field for continuous years, I realised that this is not my cup of tea. Therefore, I am looking for other career options after I complete my course. I am sure there must be others who took a different career line after PhD, and I would like to know how that is going. I am just looking for open advises, regarding other career options and experiences in the same.
People with such kind of experience feel free to share.
Thanks in advance!

I agree you can do that. I haven’t done that, but it’s a good option as one of my friends did the same thing. He did his PhD and then joined a private company and guess what just because of his PhD degree he got selected for a higher position.

I think it’s a great idea and I am saying this with experience. I did my PhD, and after that, I chose a career line which was non-academic, and I think that was the best decision I have ever made. It’s just like PhD is complimenting my non-academic career.
Just keep one thing in mind that choose the career wisely that’s it else, it’s a good option.
