      Until now I’ve only worked on an academic environment. I regret not having done at least an internship in industry.

      Errrm… sometimes I sort-of think maybe I shouldn’t have taken that production improvements job in Doncaster. It wasn’t design-related, I didn’t want to do it long term, and the atmosphere in the office was sometimes angry and stressy which I disliked. But actually I picked up a whole new category of skills in Lean Six Sigma and left after 9 months once I’d stopped enjoying it, so I don’t think I did too badly
