Focus on Career Transitions

“If you don't know where you're going, you may end up where you're headed."

Whether you consider yourself as ambitious with clear career goals or someone who sees what life brings, thinking about your career and what you want out of it is something you should make time for.

Career opportunities for researchers cover a wide range of sectors including HE, manufacturing, finance, business and IT, health and public administration. Recent trends demonstrate that over half of researchers on completion of their doctorate will go on to pursue a career outside academic research or teaching. 

So how do you decide which career to embrace? How do you find out which career would suit your strength, values and interests? Finally, how do you make a successful career transition?
