Event Summary

In this presentation, Brianna talked about the myriad career paths available to scientists outside of academic or industrial research. Participants were able to consider what their own career paths in these so-called "nontraditional" areas, including science policy, might look like. The discussion touched on the types of alternative careers available, how to parlay your current skills and values into a new area, ways to research career options, and how to develop the skills you might need. Brianna discussed various career options related to science policy and the power of fellowships, including the AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships, in learning more about these options.
