"Advancing your research and career through strategic planning"
Many trainees are unsure of what direction they want their career to take. And, regardless of the career path(s) you are pursuing, today’s scientist faces a competitive job market that rewards productivity in the lab, stellar communication skills, a strong professional network, and professional confidence. Creating an Individual Development Plan (IDP) is one way to help you strategically work toward these goals, advocate for yourself, and take advantage of lucky opportunities that might come along. This workshop is designed to prepare scientists for creating their IDP, with practical strategies for evaluating career options, setting achievable goals, engaging mentors, and adapting to change as your plan progresses.
