I am currently a postdoc thinking about applying for jobs in industry (I am particularly interested in jobs in R&D in computational chemistry, but any help would be appreciated).
I am aware than when applying for jobs in academia (e.g., postdocs), it is common to apply a few months or even up to a year in advance. However, when applying for jobs in industry, how early should one apply? Do companies expect one to start working just after the job is offered to you?
I am also considering moving to the US (I am not an American citizen), so how should visa application timelines be considered in the job application timeline?
