When deciding on your internship, what did you want to experience and what did you hope to gain from that experience?

I wanted to experience something outside of academic research that still utilised the skills I had learnt as a PhD student and gain a knowledge of the alternative careers that are available.

Did you discover anything about yourself or make any achievements that you were not expecting? 

I realised that I liked academic research, specifically the problem solving aspect and the non-routine nature of research.

Has the internship made you feel differently about potential career options and has it helped to put the skills from research into a broader context?

Although it enabled me to see how my research skills were relevant outside of academia, it made me realise that I would like to pursue a career within research.
