Completion of a research project is almost always beneficial to early-career individuals, whether or not research plays a major role in their subsequent careers. To be successful in research, you must establish clear goals and expectations for yourself, determine what actually interests you, be open to learning, correction, and even failures, and carefully choose both research projects and mentors. (Michael Bettmann)
