Revathy also quickly found that her new connections made for a useful source of information about upcoming opportunities. In the course of her informational interviews she learned of several vacancies opening up in the summer – for which she plans to apply. Revathy’s postdoc contract is nearing its completion, and she plans on making the most of her newfound skills and connections to secure a role in industry, where she can continue to network, gain more skills and learn about what it means to run a business.
She also now has a much clearer plan for her career beyond the next role. She intends to use her next position as a steppingstone towards starting her own business, specialising in phage formulations as a solution for the problems caused by bacteria.
