top tips from researchers who have walked their talk
October 26, 2009
Vitae has produced a series of short films with PhD students who have successfully completed their research on a part time basis. It’s a fascinating insight into not only the variety of topics people choose but the age range, gender and approaches people take to a significant part time endeavour while doing something else. This short film is the ‘top tips’ the researchers would offer others embarking on a similar exercise – I particularly liked the ‘trust your subconscious’ one and not all extended periods away from the research is wasted time (that’s my guilty sub conscious kicking in:). What did strike me was how relevant much of this advice is, from those who have walked their talk, to the world of work regardless of what your task is.
