I can get a job 'relatively easily' as I have relevant experience and qualifications for some roles. No problem - no telly/gf/family/friends hassling me to worry about. But, I have some cash issues right now, and in fact really want to get away from the PhD for a bit and get into a different environment. I probably don't need a PhD to work there but it looks like lots of people who do work there have PhDs so it wouldn't be a bad thing to finish. And also for personal reasons I'm sure most people here understand.
For the long-term career I think the work would be great experience.
I am due to finish in December, and possibly have an option of working full time for 3 months in a company which looks attractive. The flip side is I will undoubtedly forget a lot during the time away - and just before writing up. I do think I can finish the PhD, but it will be harder if I take time off. Any thoughts?
Thanks hazyjane. Yes I have been to counselling at my university, it's been very helpful.
Yes I agree. It is a worse situation for me because one of the supervisors is an emotional retards who aim to project their problems onto students. Couple that with a PhD which was initially 10 years worth of work for a postdoc and you have an idea of what I am going through.
