I am a PhD student in chemistry on my final year, with some publications but no industry experience. What advice could you give me to get Research Scientist positions at big companies? Considering that I am foreigner national, do companies even bother the hassle of applying for a visa for an employee without "industry" experience?

Many companies are willing to sponsor visas for the right candidate, so it is worth applying even if you do not have experience. Make sure your CV is up to date and highlights your relevant qualifications

Many companies are hesitant to sponsor visas for employees without industry experience. However, there are a few ways to get around this. You could start by looking for positions at smaller companies that may be more willing to take a chance on you. Alternatively, you could try to network with people working in the industry and see if they can help you get your foot in the door. Whatever you do, don't give up! Persistence is key
