With so many options for PhD scientists these days, it is easy to feel like taking certain career paths means you won’t be “using your PhD”. 

As anyone who gets their Doctorate comes to realize, there are many ways it will be used throughout life.

I had presented my research at college symposiums, and thrived on explaining my experiments to other members of the scientific community.
