Creative Job Searching
Being able to submit job applications online makes searching for jobs outside of academia seem deceptively easy. In reality, finding a position, particularly in the current economic climate, may take more creativity. In this workshop, we talked about the importance of networking, how to market yourself properly, and other ways to get a leg up on the competition when applying for nonacademic jobs.
Most scientists seem to wish that they had better work/life balance. This presentation offered some practical tips to help you find better balance. We talked about topics including why balance is a problem for scientists, family-friendly workplaces, ways to better communicate with your family and manage life at home, and plenty of time management tips.
