A job in academia has always been the alternative one for me as having a teaching career has never sounded that appealing to me. I was looking for a job in research and development department in many companies after graduated my first degree (MEng) and couldn’t find one that would even consider with the MEng degree that I have. I would need at least a Masters (by research) degree just to make myself eligible to apply for the job. So I thought I might as well do a PhD if I’m getting a research degree. And now fast approaching the finish line, I’m still not interested in looking for a job in academia when I finally completed my PhD. In fact, I can’t wait to finish and leave this place!
