I was all geared up to write something about the beginning of my career planning journey, how I was going to tackle the hunt, the transition from academia to a new field, and whether or not to keep the door open to go back.
The first step of the journey has come on me more suddenly than I thought – I have my first job interview tomorrow. A part-time, fairly basic role within my university. Having not had an interview for 3 years, and this being the first time I’ve tried to translate my academic skills into another role, the prospect finds me rather more nervous than I thought.
I’ll report on how it goes!
