Nontraditional Career Options

There has been some interest in nontraditional careers in the blogsphere today, inspired by a post on Almost a PhD about a seminar on Alternative Careers for Life Science PhD’s (sic) that was too general for the author’s needs.

ScienceCareers.org just published “Seeking the Alternative“, a list of nontraditional careers they have covered over the years, with links to stories of actual people who are in those careers.

Another list of 16 scientists in nontraditional careers appeared on The Prodigal Academic, complete with comments on pros and cons of each job.

More food for thought…..
