A science professional may have a career as a scientist, in science or from science
Working as a scientist you will be in a S.T.E.M. environment and the role will be clearly recognized as a science role. Working ‘in’ science might be in a S.T.E.M. sector but will have moved away from direct day-to-day science and be influencing, supporting, promoting, managing, leading, and shaping. Scientists also move into the wider employment sector where their science knowledge and wider skills are also valued and these are ‘from’ science. Even within these broad categories, the roles differ. S.T.E.M. skills and knowledge are of course valuable in many types of non-S.T.E.M. businesses – marketing, modeling, product development, finance, insurance, communications, etc. but in the S.T.E.M. related business-to-business environments (e.g. pharmaceuticals marketing and IT services) a high level of technical and specialist knowledge is essential.
