Leaving academia? Now what?

Job huntA colleague at another University pointed out an article on leaving academia for those with a PhD in science.  The focus is on reframing your thoughts on what the PhD is for and on what it means to leave academia – and I think this applies whatever the subject area of your PhD (so relevant for non-scientists too).

I recognise a lot of the sentiments from talking to PhD students and research staff and I think it’s worth reading for those of you exploring career options outside academia.
