I advise my grad students who are looking toward an academic career to have a Plan B. Part of that process is to think about the kinds of companies and kind of work you would be interested in doing.
I just found a list of companies I would have loved to work for seven years ago, had I decided not to go the academic route, I probably would have been knocking doors here:
Origin (Atos Origin)
Anderson Consulting (Accenture)
Crystal Dynamics (Eidos Interactive)
Kaua’i Institute for Communications Media
The Dalton School
Reuters New Media
Funny; most of these actually survived in some form, and I would still love to work for any of them. (well, I guess with the notable exception…)
No related posts.
Does the Kaua’i Institute still do stuff? Their Web site seems to have frozen in 1996. But man, what a place to sit and think big thoughts….
I didn’t notice. Yeah, it looks like it is about where it was when I first noticed it :).
If you decide to go off to Kaua’i, I’m first in line for your job though :).
