just looking at roles I could take on after my PhD - after having some pretty uninspiring talks from people at GSK and Pfizer this week so pondering on leaving a lab setup..
Wondering if there are any companies that have dedicated schemes to take on people with PhDs into the business side of things? Mckinsey & co take PhDs on as junior associates and offer appropriate training, which does look very appealing. Obviously I would like to keep it related to Pharma/Biotech but I guess this isn't essential to start with (ideally what I would like to get into is equity research, with a pharma focus)

Plus down the line there are Technical/Development Director roles in London for £150k + 100% bonus plus package, and if you're really good Managing Director eventually.
I placed a Development Director in North London on £250k basic, 100% bonus, and roughly £8m per annum of profit share.

Anyone ever moved to Amsterdam? Applying for media sales/marketing roles for fashion houses and just wondered if anyone knew of any good recruitment agencies?
Can't tell if my CV is absolute shite as well as so long since I've updated.

Emailing a 'Thank You' message to the hiring manager after an interview - is this a no-no?!

It very much depends on the size of the company, small companies would always appreciate the personal touch and the courtesy.

I need to see a careers advisor. Do universities still offer their services up from free to non stoodents, or will I have to hire some sort of coach? Can't be doing with my line of work anymore and want to hone my skills elsewhere.

Any good articles for writing CVs? Haven't had to write a CV in years and don't have a clue where to start.

I'm applying for a job at present and I've been asked for my salary expectations (basic and package). For basic should I give a specific number or a range? Is there a general amount above what I'm currently on that is acceptable to ask (eg current +10/20%)? And for package what should I include, bonus? leave?

Package would include any extra benefits other than your salary, annual bonus, pension or share scheme etc, health care, company car etc. etc.
Not sure on the best way to give basic, I've usually said a number but indicated that I could negotiate if necessary - I'm pretty terrible about the money side of things though tbh!

Anyone on here work in traditional/digital marketing?
Graduating in a few months and trying to work out what I want to do. Just got certified on Google Adwords but it's pretty dry so dunno if going down the search route would be particularly interesting.

Does anyone here work in the Spreadbetting field, got an interview coming up for a Business Operations Analyst role and just wanted to know what it's like to work in this area and maybe the type of questions I may face.

I'm self-employed and so have no pension, I'd like to start a personal pension, is there any good way of comparing offerings etc or do I basically have to go and talk to an IFA?
