There's more to industry than R&D! In Field Science jobs, STEM PhDs can directly partner with, educate or help the customer, client, partner or audience of an organization, making an immediate and personal impact on their market and mission. Field careers emphasize the importance of genuine, personable relationship-building, communication skills, technical knowledge, self-management, and leveraging both subject-matter expertise and emotional intelligence to meet with, educate and train people. With field-based experience, PhDs can quickly learn how businesses operate, hone their client-facing skillsets, and position themselves for a variety of next steps within the professional world.
