As I have progressed from graduate student, to postgraduate, to faculty member, to industrial researcher, to business research manager, to senior technical functional manager, to just plain senior business manager, I have experienced many successes and many pitfalls that a young scientist may face during his or her career. Although I no longer teach for a living, I actually spend a very good part of each day teaching and advising young scientists and engineers how to handle specific issues related to the work I am actually paid to accomplish. While providing this guidance, it has occurred to me that others may in fact also gain some small benefit if I share my experiences and guidance.
Ã‚Â Thus I start a series of random posts offering my advice. I include the warning so anyone looking for discussion of my and Still Here TooÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s relationship or anyone who generally thinks that scientists are a bunch of geeks and just does not want to even hear about their world (their loss) does not waste time reading. I hope it helps someone out there. A more appropriate place for this series, which will be as long as it is (I will stop only when I get bored or run out of things to post ), might be a separate blog. Perhaps someday, if the number of post grows, I may take the time to set one up. But for now, this is our blog, so I can post here if I want , and Still Here Too said I can.
