Deciding to enter graduate school and begin a career in science. You never know which is the best direction to follow for your career. I took a punt and it has paid off.
Moving to Australia for a sabatical and then deciding to quit a permanent job in India and stay in Australia, not knowing how my career will work out and if I will be able to get a job long term was challenging decision. But it has been good so far.
Working out what I wanted to do at uni, and then preparing for the job interviews along the way
um I guess moving to France on my own for several months and learning to live independently in a foreign country
Hey Magicalninja007 (cool name!)
One of the biggest challenges I’ve ever faced was presenting at my first conference. As a PhD student I had to give a presentation to a room of a few hundred scientists. It was really scary because I felt so under qualified! It turned out to be not as bad as I expected, and I’ve never been as nervous to speak again.
