“[Making a transition] is not a hard and fast line where you move beyond academia and that feels straight away fine and comfortable, and this is absolutely normal.”
Dr Al Mathers Former postdoc, Head of Research at Good Things Foundation
For many people, career transition is an emotional journey that does not end when you get a new job. As with starting any new job in any working environment, feeling like you don’t know what you are doing, and that you don’t belong is normal.
By reviewing your own previous emotional highs and lows in relation to your career milestones, you can build confidence in your ability to overcome and cope with the period of uncertainty that career transition often brings.
