Event Summary

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, attendees were prepared to ensure their job interviews are great conversations with potential employers.

Work/Life Balance

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.
