I am in my last year of my PhD and regarding to my future career, the consulting industry left a massive impression on me. I would consider myself more as a generalist instead of an “real” scientist, which I really noticed during my doctorate. My question is now: Is there anybody out there, who joined as a graduated natural scientist, in the end of their twenties, a consulting company? I feel kind of frustrated, by imagine that I would entry the industry on the same level as a master graduate, who are also commonly in their mid-twenties. And even if I would entry the company on a higher level, the expectations are much higher and as a PhD I do not provide the expected skills/knowledge (economical/business part). At the moment I regret that I decided to start a PhD. Even by completing my doctorate abroad, where I increased my skills in a new language almost perfectly, I have the feeling that I didn’t developed myself enough... Does someone have similar thoughts or has already experience he/she would like to share? I would highly appreciate that!
