I am a 2nd-year Ph.D. student from the Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior (EEB) program at the University of Minnesota. Unlike lots of Ph.D. students in my department, I am one of the few students who would like to pursue a non-academic career path after graduate school years.
Sadly, there aren't many resources from my program regards to the non-academic career paths and I decided to post here to get some advice and guideline from you all.
Most of my work is focusing on animal movement by using quantitative skill sets (both theoretical modeling and statistical modeling). I got my bachelor's degree in statistics and am hoping to find a possible internship in regard to data science (if that is somewhat related to biologging, animal movement research, that would be wonderful as well!).
Could anyone give me some guidelines and advice on what I should do for pursuing non-academic career paths in the future while I am in the Ph.D. program? Any suggestions on where I should look for internship opportunities would be great as well!
