UCLA Postdoc Career Training Workshop with Dr. Peter Fiske
Putting your PhD to Work - Workshop
3:30-5:00pm, CNSI Auditorium
5:00-6:00pm, CNSI Lobby
More postdoctoral scholars are considering a wider range of careers in and out of science, but feel ill-prepared and uninformed about their options. Some young scientists feel their Ph.D. training has led them to a dead-end. This workshop, with participatory exercises, will present a thorough and practical overview of the process of career planning and job hunting in today’s job market, from the perspective of a Ph.D. scientist. Fiske will cover specific steps that young scientists can take to broaden their horizons, strengthen their skills, and present their best face to potential employers. The concept and value of “transferable skills” will be a key theme.
