When I worked as a recruiter, I noticed something quite interesting. I had a lot of candidates who were in academia trying to break into industry and, as many of you may know, making that transition can be very difficult. The interesting part was that I had a handful of candidates that were different than the rest. While they were also recent PhD graduates or postdocs, they would get multiple offers from some of the best pharmaceutical companies in the country.
