Hi! My name is Olga and I’m the one behind the postphdcareer.com. After finishing my PhD I decided to work in the industry instead of continuing my career in the academia. It wasn’t an easy decision since there were some pros and cons for both options. Also, I had no idea what to expect from a career in the industry.

Since I have started working at Janssen, I was asked by friends who were working in the academia about what the job was like, advice on looking for a job in the companies and other related information. At that point the answers seemed obvious to me, however looking back I realized that not long ago I had the same questions. To help out I made some lists/overviews based on my experience. And then I thought, why not share it online so that it can help more people and not only my personal contacts? This is when the idea for this blog was born.
