After the Ph.D. (in Molecular Sci), I decided to move to the industry job.
When I am writing job application selection criteria essays (this is a must thingy in Australia), How do I articulate clearly I want to move from academia (after Science Ph.D.) to industry and work for that employer, and I have experiences in their selection criteria?
I found people suspicious of a Ph.D. unless the position was with an academic institution. “If you don’t go into Higher Education, there’s something wrong with you.” attitude. and sometimes they think PhDs are overqualified, and also PhDs have only worked inside a university and won’t fit in.
So, How can I address these issues in job application selection criteria essays?
Does anyone have experience in this area?
Thank you in advance.
