Room 9BC
In this fast-paced, energetic workshop, participants will learn about various professional development skills that will help them advance in their scientific career. We will discuss traditional and non-traditional career opportunities for astronomers and job search processes and strategies, and attendees will hear from an astronomer who forged an exciting career in industry and the lessons and tactics that have made her successful. We will address professional skills such as networking, negotiation, and leadership principles for emerging and established astronomers, among other topics of importance. Q and A with workshop participants will be highly encouraged.

This workshop is offered in conjunction with Careers 101: Career Planning Workshop. Participants will benefit from attending both, but can also take each independently.
