How do you find good Ph.D. research jobs? I have a B.S. and Ph.D. in materials and nuclear engineering respectively. I had a job before going back to grad school as front line manufacturing process engineer, but now I want more a research/characterization R&D type job. On LinkedIn and Indeed I’m only finding other front line manufacturing engineering jobs.

Nuclear engineering?

The government, preferably Virginia or DC


With nuclear engineering you could go the route of postdoc-research scientist at a university or national lab. Otherwise look into fusion research, lots of nuclear engineering skills transfer over to fusion and there's plenty of opportunities there both in the private sector and government.

If going for academia - reach out to the university professors via email, as universities don’t post jobs on their website.

I am a junior at Babson College and recently received an offer for a Business Operations Analyst Summer internship at Wayfair in their Boston office. Pay is $31 an hour. Someone at my school told me that their first year associates post-graduation only make $60k. On levels it said first year analysts make more in the ballpark of 80k. Which salary is more realistic for a new grad at the company? Any insights are appreciated. Thank you!

Just going to rant a bit… What’s really an account director’s role? ADs in my company create confusion in trying to insert themselves into the conversation, they don’t understand management consulting and confuse clients, they fake having relationships with key decision makers, often misread the company politics/camps and then try to justify their failures by trying to gaslight us into thinking we were either too expensive for the Client or didn’t do a great job on prior engagements or some BS!

I got back from NAPABA this week and have felt super inspired and motivated.

Basically he said "can you share some of that motivation w me? I need some" to which I sort of stumbled over a reply that danced around the fact that I mainly feel good bc NAPABA..
