Managing Your Relationship with Your Supervisor

In this presentation, Brianna offered strategies for grad students and postdocs to use in order to best manage their relationships with their supervisors. This included advice on choosing a postdoc position, establishing goals and expectations with your adviser, day-to-day communication techniques, and what to do when problems arise. The session concluded with a discussion of case studies based on questions posted on the Science Careers Forum.

Interviewing Skills

Whether youve got a job interview scheduled or youre just starting to think about the job search process, its never too early to start thinking about how to best present yourself to employers. In this workshop, we walked through every step of the interviewing process from initial phone interviews to preparing for the big day to following up with your interviewers. Attendees learned about what employers want to see from job applicants and what job applicants should ask about during an interview. After the workshop, participants were prepared to make their job interview a great conversation with a potential employer.
