I couldn’t remember why I got my PhD anymore.
I was in the middle of a postdoc at the University of California in San Diego and was starting to feel like I was on a dead-end career track.
I used to dream of being a famous scientist and changing the world with my research.
Now, however, I was just hoping to get funded for a few more months and praying to get a recommendation from my academic advisorone day.
Then, one day, I made the decision to move into industry.
