Alternative Careers in Science: Leaving the Ivory Tower (Google eBook)
Academic Press, Apr 28, 2011 - Science - 320 pages
Many science students find themselves in the midst of graduate school or sitting at a lab bench, and realize that they hate lab work! Even worse is realizing that they may love science, but science (at least academic science) is not providing many job opportunities these days. What's a poor researcher to do !?
This book gives first-hand descriptions of the evolution of a band of hardy scientists out of the lab and into just about every career you can imagine. Researchers from every branch of science found their way into finance, public relations, consulting, business development, journalism, and more - and thrived there! Each author tells their personal story, including descriptions of their career path, a typical day, where to find information on their job, opportunities to career growth, and more. This is a must-read for every science major, and everyone who is looking for a way to break out of their career rut.
* An insider's look at the wide range of job opportunities for scientists yearning to leave the lab
* First-person stories from researchers who successfully made the leap from science into finance, journalism, law, public policy, and more.
* Tips on how to track down and get that job in a new industry
* Typical day scenarios for each career track
* List of resources (websites, associations, etc.) to help you in your search
* Completely revised, this latest edition includes six entirely new chapters

This is a useful read for where one can go after some specialization in the sciences. Each career path is a personal account of one person, which makes this book interesting and unique, but also makes if hard to relate to at times. Overall themes in career search and how to switch may emerge, depending on how attentively you read each account. Some updated stats on careers of scientists would be a useful addition to this book. As the landscape of the science careers change in the coming decades,imagine this book may change or other may be necessary, to address the impending collapse of the science machine, in overdrive on cheap and highly-skilled labor. As Beryl Lieff Benderly so aptly describes it in her article, The Real Science Gap, it is a problem of labor, not education...
