If You’re Seeking An R&D Position, See If You Answer YES To These Questions…
Do you want a high-quality research position, but want to stay involved with innovative research – either at the bench or away from it?
Do you struggle translating your value into industry-relevant results beyond publications?
Have you found it challenging to get noticed by employers because there are so many people trying to leave academia for R&D now?
Do you have little information on what an R&D position would entail, making you wonder if you’re prepared for an interview…much less a new role?
Are you wondering how the skills you already have that you developed in academia translate into the skills you need to break into an R&D position?
PhDs Working In Industry Are Drivers Of Innovation
Innovation is the introduction of new ideas, products or methods, and it allows companies to penetrate new markets and access new opportunities.
R&D directly supports the development of knowledge and technology, both of which are crucial components of innovation. All companies need to innovate to stay relevant, and that is especially true during tough economic times like the current contracting economy.
As a skilled researcher, you have been trained on how to push the boundaries of knowledge and innovate within your field. Less than 2% of the global population has this kind of knowledge. This makes you an outstanding candidate for companies looking to innovate in an unpredictable market environment.
These companies will keep investing in R&D this year, even during the current market contraction.
During past economic downturns, 70% of companies invested in R&D despite decreased revenue, and executives credit this decision for their companies’ growth when the economy recovered (RVmagnetics).
Takeaways From Past Economic Downturns...
Imagine receiving targeted, structured, and personalized advice on how to get hired from current R&D professionals at top companies.
Imagine getting step-by-step insights on how you will be using your current skills in a top R&D position and how to get into the right position for you.
The R&D Society will give you access to a community of thousands of professionals who can answer questions that you have in real time and provide you with networking opportunities.
If you want to focus your job search on the right R&D companies for you, demystify what you can expect from an R&D position, and gain insights from industry R&D professionals, then the R&D Society is the perfect fit for you.
Whether You Have Postgraduate Experience Or Are About To Get Your Degree,
It Isn’t Too Early Or Too Late To Become An R&D Professional At A Top Company.
No matter where you are in your research career, the time to get hired and get paid what you’re worth is now
Don’t do more academic research.
Instead, transition NOW.
Don’t stay in academia out of a sense of guilt.
Instead, transition NOW.
Realize that top companies do NOT want you to gain more academic research experience before hiring you.
Instead, they want you to gain on-the-job experience.
That’s right – they want to give you company-specific, on-the-job training …and they would prefer this training to start NOW.
The Sooner You Get Hired, The More Successful Your Career Will Be.
“The R&D Society provides a more intimate setting that allowed me to learn from top R&D professionals and get community support from others going through the same job search process as me. The advice I received was high quality and from current corporate research scientists.”
“Receiving targeted feedback regarding research scientist interviews, presentations, and resumes from current industry research scientists gave me confidence and ensured I was approaching my R&D job search correctly.”

To Stack The Odds Of Getting Hired In Your Favor, You’ll Need….
- Inside information from R&D professionals currently working in top corporate careers – the kind of professionals who are in the R&D Society.
- Knowledge of how to get job referrals from R&D professionals – job referrals that lead to interviews and job offers.
- Translate your current presentation abilities into a presentation that is relevant to company leaders, showcases your skills, and informs decisions.
- Understand the difference between R&D positions across industries so you can establish the best fit.
- Create a resume or CV that avoids losing the attention of R&D employers.
- Cultivate knowledge to successfully interact with employers during phone conversations.
- Articulate your interest in a company at critical moments during the interview process.
- Give the right answers to important questions during your site visit.
- Learn how to reveal your personality in a way that shows you are able to work both autonomously and with a team.
- Express yourself in a way that aligns with a company’s goals.
- Showcase your collaboration abilities, problem-solving expertise, and other transferable skills.
- Ace the behavioral questions that R&D employers will ask you.
- “Wow” the audience with your interview presentation during your site visit.
The Goal Of Research Is Different.
According to the National Science Foundation, academia receives 56% of the funds devoted to basic research. In contrast, companies only receive 22% of the funds for basic research, but they claim 61% of the funds for applied research and 87% of the funds for development.
The point is clear—in academia, your efforts are centered around advancing knowledge, but at a company, your efforts are focused on developing a product or treatment that will benefit the consumers or patients.
Importantly, if you do not have a strong understanding of development (that’s the “D” in R&D) or commercialization, then you’re in trouble. This R&D Society will help.
- The work atmosphere is different. When you were completing your degree engaging in academic research, you were likely working with limited funding and vague milestones that had to change. You also had a lot of time to explore things by yourself, for better for for worse, because you were creating knowledge for the sake of knowledge that might help someone directly decades later. In industry, company objectives are set by teams and you’ll work closely with a professional team to hit very clear goals to produce products, services, tech, drugs, formulations or treatments that will help humanity in this lifetime.
- The communication expectations are different in a corporate environment. You will be required to concentrate on your strategic tasks. You’ll also be required to elevate your communication skills so you can discuss key results with executives, investors and other stakeholders that don’t have your expertise. Just as importantly, your future employer isn’t primarily looking at your publication record. They want to know how you’ll mesh with the company culture, how well you can collaborate, and what other transferable skills you have.

Why R&D Holds So Much Opportunity For You
1. Research & Development is a massive part of industry.
According to UNESCO, the world spends $2 TRILLION on R&D every year, and the United States alone spends $581 billion on R&D annually. This is a huge amount of money and this large spend creates many, many opportunities for you in different industries.
2. R&D is always changing and always advancing, and maintaining a culture of innovation was one of the top concerns for R&D employers.
As a researcher you are well suited to help companies maintain and build an innovative culture, and this is something you should communicate when you are talking with potential employers. According to the Innovation Research Interchange, more than 40% of the employers surveyed said that one of their top innovation tactics is to hire new people. They are looking for new, fresh people who can bring innovative ideas to their companies.
3. Companies in all sectors invest heavily in R&D
As researchers, we tend to think that R&D is a subject that only pertains to biotechnology, technology and pharmaceutical companies. Yet, companies in dozens of industries invest heavily on Research & Development. This means that you can find a fulfilling career in R&D no matter your background and whether or not you want to do bench work or manage those doing benchwork.
3 Biggest Advantages Of Working In R&D…
1. Your Progress Is Measured Accurately And Consistently Based On Performance.
In R&D at a top company, your performance on assigned work and shared goals is used to accurately measure your progress. Your performance is also used for determining promotions, salary increases, and bonuses. Not only this, but there are specific people designated for measuring your progress and they are actually held accountable to it.
The important takeaway here is that you know exactly how you are doing at all times. Your goals, your manager’s goals, and the company’s goals are aligned, which helps manage expectations. Don’t underestimate the motivational power of this kind of clarity and feedback.
It’s powerful and it leads to a much happier personal and professional lifestyle.
2. You Are Rewarded For Being A Leader And Showing Initiative.
In R&D, you will work at a very fast work pace and be expected to deliver accurate results quickly. This is a good thing. It’s even enjoyable. Working at a faster pace is enjoyable is because you are working with a team whose goals are aligned with your goals. It’s also enjoyable because you are rewarded for finding better ways of doing things. If you take the initiative to improve the workflow of a system, improve a product, or make any part of the company better—you’re rewarded. The more confidently you take initiative, the more you are rewarded.
This is very difficult for those who have spent a lot of time in academic research to understand. How can initiative be so valuable? How can confidence be valuable? The answer, in short, is—time is money. Not only that—relieving pain is money and boosting team morale is money. The more time you give back to your boss, like by making a particular workflow more efficient, the more you are rewarded. Likewise, the easier you make your boss’s life and the happier you make your team, the more you are rewarded. True leaders are promoted quickly in R&D. This isn’t always the case in academia.
3. You Are Part Of A Supportive And Structured Work Environment.
In R&D, every researcher has their own team, their own team project, and their own individual responsibilities that are aligned with the team’s goals. Everyone is trained to support each other. In fact, the ability to work well independently and as part of a team is the main requirement of getting an R&D job. As such, R&D teams are not only very supportive, they are highly structured.
Overall, there is a clear and defined corporate ladder in R&D. The key to climbing this ladder is to take initiative and show leadership skills whenever possible. This means going out of your way, without being asked, to improve company systems and to relieve your boss and the company in general of tedious work.
By achieving your goals and staying aligned with the company goals, you can move your career forward from your first R&D position to bigger and better roles.

Take a look at some of the community support conversations in the R&D Society below…
“The R&D Society is a great program for anyone who specifically wants to transition into a research position in any industry sector. ”
3 Reasons Why You Should Join The R&D Society
You enjoy research but are struggling in your job search. You already have the research skills you need and know you can learn new ones on your own or through the job search training process. But, you’re not getting many interviews, or you’re not getting any interviews at all. Or, maybe you don’t even know where to start in your job search. Which companies are right for you? How do you craft a resume for R&D positions? Do you include your publications? What about LinkedIn? If you’re asking these questions, the R&D Society is right for you.
The world of R&D is a mystery to you. You’ve only done research in academia and you don’t know what R&D looks like in business. Whether you want to work at a startup or a large corporation; whether you want to work at a biotechnology, technology, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, food and beverage, or other sector, you need to learn how to communicate the skills you already have using the specific language of the company type and sector you want to get into. The R&D Society will help you translate your skills for the right company, sector and specific position for you.
The R&D Society will help you finally translate the knowledge you gained during your years and years of research into products, services, technologies, features, formulations, drugs, or treatments that help people today, in this lifetime. You will finally be able to transition from creating knowledge for the sake of knowledge to having an impact on humanity now, not later. If this is something you want for yourself, then the R&D Society is right for you.
“The insights I got from the R&D Society is amazing. The program has helped me with every step of the job search process and given me tips on resume writing, networking and more, including access to other Research Scientists.”
“Getting into a Research Scientist position in industry is very different from getting into a non-research position. This is why the R&D Society is important: it gives you targeted and personalized help specifically for R&D positions.”
Who The R&D Society Is NOT For…
It’s NOT For People Who Want Private, Real-Time Mentorship Meetings
This is a self-serve mentorship program that includes a variety of online materials that you can go through at your own pace. It does include access to a private group of community support only where you can engage with other members but no advice is promised outside of the community you engage with. We do have a premium coaching service for those interested in private meetings but this program does not offer private mentorship meetings.
It’s NOT For People Who Think This Program Is Their Fairy Godmother (We Do NOT Guarantee A Job)
The R&D Society is a comprehensive guide to getting hired into R&D and includes everything from guidance from those already working at top companies, to resume templates, highly targeted insights on the job market, and community support. But, this program will not write your resume for you. This program does NOT guarantee you a job in any way. Being a member of the R&D Society is a huge advantage over other candidates because of the knowledge and network you get access to, but it’s not magic; it’s not a fairy godmother who will wave a wand get you hired the next day.
It’s NOT For People Who Avoid Personal Responsibility
The R&D Society includes email reminders and prompts to hold you accountable to working your way through the program. We want to make sure you find the right company and right fit position for you and your background. This means keeping you motivated even when you feel motivated. If you hate getting reminders, insights, tools and check-in messages, then this program is not for you. You can go through the program at your own pace and personalize your settings so you can choose which reminders, if any, to get, but it’s important for you to know there is an accountability aspect of the program.
When It Comes To Getting The R&D Position You Want, Knowledge Is Power
- You know what you want. R&D companies will be looking for some very specific qualities.
- You’ll need to leverage skills you already have but may not realize you developed during your time in academia.
- The R&D Society will get you from where you are now to where you want to be. We’ve done it. We’ve helped thousands of people do it before you. And we can help you do it too.
- The R&D Society is your starting place. It’s time to turn the page and open the next chapter in your life and career.
