I knew I didn’t wanted to stay at the bench after my postdoc, but I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to do.  I spent time thinking about my interests, researching different career directions, and talking to people in a variety of positions. Ultimately, I decided that knowledge management was the direction I wanted to pursue, and I found a great fit in the Content Quality Control Scientist position at Ingenuity Systems.  I am really excited about my job and career direction and thank the career center for their help navigating the application, interview, and negotiation processes.
