Moving on: The Physics PhD Student’s Guide to Boosting Employability
The number of people entering the labour market with a degree has grown dramatically in the last generation.
Many degrees now include industrial training and focus on developing specific skills, so you might expect employers to have their pick of great candidates.
The truth, though, is that every time a group of employers is surveyed, they identify skills shortages and a need for high calibre candidates with particular technical or personal expertise.
A PhD gives you the chance to develop technical knowledge and skills to a very high level, but the nature of research is such that you will also have the opportunity to develop a broader set of valuable professional skills.
