Nearing the end of grad school (one hopes) and am trying to figure out what I can actually DO with this degree. Need interesting job suggestions outside of academia for Cognitive Psychology/Neuroscience PhD.

My goal is to graduate this May with a PhD in Cognitive Psychology with a Neuroscience bent. My current research uses behavioral and fMRI techniques to look at visual short term memory and visual attention capacity limits (ie. how many things can you remember/pay attention to at once), thus I know a bunch about human attention and short-term memory, a decent amount about human vision, and have a general knowledge of a variety of cognitive disciplines. I know that I can go on and teach college or get a postdoc position in research with my PhD, but am interested in what else might be out there in industry and what not for someone with my skills. Where would my education be useful?
