PIPS Internship Organisation Name
When deciding on your internship, what did you want to experience and what did you hope to gain from that experience?
As I already had industrial experience prior to my PhD, I was happy to undertake roles in novel areas with a view to developing new skills.
Did you discover anything about yourself or make any achievements that you were not expecting?
The experience enabled me to consider a range of roles after my PhD in addition to science.
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?
Yes. I'm happy to move away from science with confidence that I have a variety of skills that can be used in a range of other fields. A long personal interest has been I.T. and I intend to move into that field in due course.
