PhD: the Research & Distractions!

As I approach the end of my time as a PhD student I’ve started looking for the next career move and update my extremely outdated CV. As I reflect on what I have done over the past three years, I’ve noticed that they roughly break down into three over-arching categories Professional Development, Research and possibly too many Distractions. Professional Development is becoming an integral part of PhD training through the introduction of structured research programmes across Europe, with the aim of candidates developing a set of transferable skills applicable in both academia and industry.
