Ph.D or Job? What next? – James Clewett – 23/01/12

23rd January 2012

It’s that time of year that if you are in the final year of your degree, you may be considering your options for next year. Job? Ph.D? Traveling?

Although sleeping for an entire year in your bed at your parent’s house sounds tempting, it’s probably best to go and do something worthwhile with your time.

Today on The Science Show, we are talking to Ph.D student James Clewett about how to make those life changing decisions. In his career, James has worked in software engineering, banking, academic research (solid choices for science graduates) and many more careers along the way (including the porn industry believe it or not…), so he knows exactly how to break into the different industries and what advice to give people starting in their chosen careers.

If you are at all unsure about what steps to take next, tune into the show from 6-7pm and send in your questions to James.

We’ll also be talking about what we believe to be the best apps on the market at the moment, so send us in you opinions about this too and let us know if there’s anything you think we’ve forgotten.

Remember to follow us @urnscienceshow too!
