Advice from a math PhD (How to quit academia)
I finished my PhD in pure mathematics at one of the best universities in Europe, and left academia.
During my PhD, I was surrounded by other PhD students and postdocs, and had no contact with anyone who has made the career shift to ‘industry’. I navigated the way out of academia without much guidance. It was not easy.
Therefore, I would like to contribute back to the community by providing some advice for those who are in a similar situation to myself.
Contact me if you are unsure about academia, but too scared to quit.
