SciPhD - Preparing Scientists for Professional Careers
Being competitive and successful as a professional scientist, regardless of whether in an industry or academic setting requires mastery of scientific, business and social skills. Join SciPhD and the Professional Development and Career Office for a full-day workshop to gain hands-on training to identify and develop your skills in the Business of Science, Communications, Financial Literacy, Negotiating, and Project Management.
Dr. Randall Ribaudo and Larry Petcovich will discuss topics such as critical skills needed in industry, developing experience statements, building a personal brand, social intelligence, technical literacy, and negotiating with your hiring manager and your PI.
