A Ph.D. in simulation offers many possibilities for a further career. Examples of popular job types for simulation researchers are analyst or researcher in a public or private organization, consultant, entrepreneur, and Post Doc or researcher in a university. During the Ph.D. research, it is very well possible to prepare for the desired career path. The trade-off between applied research and theoretical research can be managed to provide a good starting point for the chosen type of job. The types of publications and research outlets can also be aligned. Independent of the job, methodological soundness, a good theoretical foundation, and validation of concepts and models are key to success. The paper will provide several guidelines for publication strategies adapted to the job type, as well as a networking strategy to help you link to the right people.
