No matter what professional experience you have, or what career trajectory you intend to follow after completing your degree, it is important to reflect on your plans for your future career and how you intend to transition from your research degree to that professional context. Depending on what path you wish to take, there are some professional skills which are specific to particular career paths; skills such as those required by professional researchers, teaching skills needed in academia, or skills that will assist you to innovate as an entrepreneur. Building professional skills during your research degree will ensure you are well-equipped for whichever pathway you choose.
