Can a scientist find a rewarding career in industry? When considering an opportunity to pursue a career in industry, many scientists face real challenges. Here are a few difficult questions they may ask: - What skills do I have that are useful in industry? - How is work in industry different than academia? - Will I enjoy working at a company instead of a research lab? - What do I need to learn in order to be successful in this new environment? - What kind of jobs do scientists hold in the private sector? - Can a scientist become a successful entrepreneur? In this book, ten respected scientists who have built successful careers in industry reveal new insights into how they made the transition from research scientist to industrial scientist or successful entrepreneur, serving as a guide to other scientists seeking to pursue a similar path. From the student preparing to transition into work in industry, to the scientist who is already working for a company, this bookwill showyou howto sell your strengths and lead confidently.
