My goal is to get a job in which I get to think more. The job offers I'm interested in require experience and/or specifically oriented degrees, including PhD often.
I mainly need training and opportunities to learn new skills otherwise I won't be able to do these jobs (I get rejected all the time), though I admit it'd be nice if I could try a PhD, for personnal accomplishment or some such thing.
As for professional rather than academic, a thesis sounds a lot more than working to me in comparison to regular studying in which you just take courses and exams, which is precesily what I hate. My enginneering degree implied both courses and exams, but also a huge part in working in a company through apprenticeship, with a big presentation in the end (after 3 years, just like a thesis) and that kind of suits me. I mean way more than courses and grades: that means nothing to me. To put it in a nutshell I want to work for things that are going to be used.
I hope I'm being clear, english is not my native language.
How do you know you get seen as overqualified if you're still doing your PhD now?
I don't kknow how to say it but getting back to regular studying is pretty much my last resort if I even consider it: I'm a bad student, I can't work if it's not for a real reason, a real project, it's beyond me. As far as passionate goes (and that's one of my main problems), I actually like many different things in science. Informatics, physics (particles, materials, space and other shit), durable energies, production and storage and transport of energy, calculus, data processing and exploitation, etc
And I really like change in what I'm doing, so if you're saying recruiters then will see me as an expert in one thing, unless I do PhDs all my life, it stinks.
Well I might have a lot more of searching to do... I'm thinking maybe informatics is the way to go for me, since it applies to many if not all things today...
Hi, I'm an egineer, working full time, but I'd like to get a better job, in fields I have no experience in.
Quite a lot of job offers that I'm interested in require a master degree in specific fields or even PhD. I don't want to stop working, I thus went to look for info and programmes and now I'm completely lost in how all this works. I just would like to get trained and learn new things while still being able to get a salary out of it. Is that possible by doing a thesis? What other option is there? To who I should seek informatio from?
