The Astronomy Career Game
WIC image

My first few years of post-doc work were productive, but I was becoming weary of this work. Some days I even thought about leaving astronomy. I published my PhD research, but my interests were taking me in many different directions at once. I had basically burned-out on the topic I selected and did not want to pursue this line of work further. My young reputation had, however, been honed on this subject, so I would now have to learn a whole new area of astronomy if I wanted to move on in my career. Luckily, there were skills I had learned that I could bank on.
