Event Summary

Managing Your Relationship with Your Supervisor

In this presentation, we presented 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.

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.
