Very interesting.

I am a PhD chemist with 2 years of experience in start-up companies.
I take it it took you at least 4 years to get your PhD.

I slaved through grad school (tiring) and now am facing another long haul to my next goal (ER).
So if grad school was "tiring" and you "slaved" through it why did you go there in the first place?

Lab work is just a bit too isolating for me. I can go all day and never speak to another human being! Uggg.
I think it IS reasonable to expect that what chemist does is perform a lot of lab work without speaking to other human beings. Once again, why did you go through grad school if this is NOT something you wanted to do?
