Leaving Academia

For many PhDs academia is what they dream of, a lot of the advice given to PhDs is also about this and your experience as a PhD may not give you too much of an insight in how to leave academia, so that may leave you wondering... how do I leave academia? How do I translate my extensive academic skills to the 'real world'. Well this is the episode for you! This time we chat to Holly Prescott (Careers Adviser), Mark Ewbank (Former-Phd, House of Commons) and Joe Loudon (Brilliant Club).
