Succeeding In Academia
13:00-14:30 and 15:00-16:30
How do professors get hired? What key things should you be promoting when looking for a position? And once you find a position how do you navigate building a research program, developing a teaching portfolio, and succeeding in being promoted? Join a range of panelists with the aim to de-mystify the process, and share secrets to success. This workshop is geared towards graduate students and post-docs considering an academic career. Panelists include: Meredith Hastings (Brown), Kristin Bergmann (MIT), Robyn Hannigan (University of Massachusetts Boston) and Hayley Scheibel (Suffolk University)

Finding and Succeeding Outside of Academia
13:00-14:30 and 15:00-16:30
Finding a position outside of academia can seem mysterious. For instance, what do businesses favor in terms of experience relative to an academic institution? In this workshop, speak directly with successful post-graduates navigating careers in industry, policy, research laboratories, state agencies, and private enterprise. Get practical advice and tips on landing a career that is right for you. Panelists include: Heather Houlton (AGI), Vicki S. McConnell (GSA), Rebecca Neely (Nature) and Jennifer Wade (NSF).

Mid-afternoon refreshments will be provided at the swap point.
