What can you do with a PhD? I get asked this question a lot. Many undergraduate students think that academia is the only career path for a PhD. But that could not be further from the truth.
More than 60% of science and engineering PhD students will follow non-academic career paths. These include careers in industry, non-profits, government, start-ups, consulting, entrepreneur, writing and every other career path that you can imagine.
The job picture looks good for PhDs in 2010. A new study by the Michigan State University Collegiate Employment Research Institute predicts a 20% increase in hiring of PhDs.
Jobs for Ph.D.s will spike by 20% and those for MBA graduates will rise 11%. cnn.com
