More great advice

During a conversation that started out something like, "So, do you know what you want to do when you finish your Ph.D.?", a friend of mine recommended I look up Peter Fiske. He has written extensively about how scientists' skills can be used outside of academia, and how to emphasize those skills to potential employers. If this sounds even remotely interesting to you, download this pdf and read it.

This looks like a great resource. I don't have time to look through it right now, but I am definitely saving a copy for future reference! I don't plan on staying in academia after my PhD, so this type of information is extremely helpful.
