New to the game…

I’m Charlotte. I just handed in my PhD thesis. I am looking for a job in scientific education and communication.

To achieve this, blogging seemed like the way forward. And it seems some others had the same idea…

and so on….

So why bother I hear you ask? All job applications I have *meticulously* studied, ask for experience. In wordpress, in communication, in writing… And moreover, they want proof. I’ve guest blogged before (http://www.plantcellbiology.com/2013/10/biotechnology-yes-an-entrepreneurial-adventure/

But it is time for me to go it alone.

I feel like I have so much to say. About science. About my PhD. About my experiences. And about the post-PhD journey I am about to embark upon… In the words of Dr Pepper: “What’s the worst that can happen?”
