Back by popular demand! Dara Wilson-Grant will present her highly-rated workshop on how to choose the right career on Tuesday, September 9, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. This workshop will help postdocs understand what makes a career the right or wrong fit, and provide them with a framework for choosing a rewarding career path. Through a series of self-assessments and small group activities, participants will have an opportunity to identify and explore key factors that contribute to career satisfaction.

Registrants must be graduate students, postdoctoral associates, or postdoctoral scholars in the sciences and engineering (a separate workshop will be held for students and postdocs in the social sciences and humanities). Because space is limited to 25 participants, please do not register unless you are sure you can attend.

This is an ideal workshop for graduate students and postdocs who are contemplating a career change or looking to further clarify their career direction.
