Young scientists often have to make important decisions (e.g., postdoc?, leave academia?, etc.). Jerry Nguyen is building a community (e.g., mentoring/support group) for people in academic research who are involved in important career decisions. Make sure you read Jerry Nguyen‘s comment below. Thanks for posting on the Science Board, Jerry Nguyen.
Feel free to post your questions, announcements, job ads, events, hangouts, etc. on the Science Board (see http://goo.gl/mlIji for details).

#leavingacademia June Refresh
This is the early seed circle for the “Leaving Academia” circle. The goal of this circle is to create a mentoring/support group for all people in academic research who are involved in career decisions. Currently in this circle:
Academic professors who are mentoring postdocs and grad students
PhDs and MAs who have left academia for careers in industry, reporting, and consulting
Please share this circle if you can. I’ll try my best to grow this into an active community, but I need your help to spread the word to your corners of the internet. The more folks that we can include in the discussions, the better!
If you do share (thank you!), please instruct people to comment on the original thread so that I can consolidate any new additions to the circle!
