In my experience, many people want to leave academia, but transitioning to industry is not easy. Having moved from academia to industry myself not too long ago, I know this from personal experience: Job descriptions are confusing, job titles are incomprehensible, and the requirements for applicants are often unclear. What is actually required in technical challenges? Which role is right for me? What do I actually want? In addition, scientists often lack a network in the community. I want to encourage those who are at the beginning of this journey and outline what I wish I had known when I started transitioning myself.
