You are invited to a workshop on
Planning Your Path to a Satisfying Career. Postdocs will learn strategies to explore a range of career interests and develop
an action plan to strengthen the skills required for pursuing their ideal career.
Participants will leave the workshop with a first draft or update of their Individual
Development Plan (IDP).
Postdocs who attend this workshop will also be prepared to join a new career mentoring
group from the
PhD Career Ladder Program. We're very excited to adapt our NSF-funded PhD Career Ladder Program (PCLP) for
postdocs into a streamlined four month program, led by postdocs, for postdocs. Following
the PCLP model, a small group of postdocs would meet once a month for a structured
series of peer-led career preparation steps, from self-assessment, to skill identification,
to informational interviewing, and resume/CV refining. The first exercise for PCLP
is the Planning Your Path workshop on Feb 15th.
