Career Planning 101: How to leverage IDPs and informational interviewing to find the best career fit @ Bondurant 2020
Oct 9 @ 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm

Do you feel uncertain about your next career move? Are you intimidated about the number of choices available and don’t know where to begin the process of choosing your career? Fortunately, there are a wide variety of tools that can help you through this process. In this two-part workshop, you will assess your skills, interests, and values and use these results to craft an individual development plan to guide your career planning process. Next, you will learn strategies for gathering career profiles and for connecting you to new professional networks through informational interviewing. Come to the workshops prepared to think deeply about your career path, and you’ll leave with the tools and confidence that you need to explore careers and find the right fit!

Please Note: This event is a 2-part workshops series that is open to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. We ask that registrants commit to attending both sessions. Registration is capped at 30, so register now!

Workshop presenters: Erin Hopper, PhD, Director of TIBBS, UNC and Nisha Cavanaugh, PhD, Director, Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, NCSU

The Women in Science (WinS) group at UNC-Chapel Hill, sponsored by the Training Initiatives in Biomedical & Biological Sciences (TIBBS) program, focuses on supporting, promoting, and encouraging the continued success and leadership development of women in the science fields. We are pleased to announce our inaugural event of the 2014-2015 academic year, “Stepping Up, Not Stepping Aside”.
UNC has recently had the unique opportunity to have a female scientist lead our university. On October 13th at 1:00 pm in the Kirkland Auditorium in the Koury Oral Health Sciences Building, we have the privilege and distinct honor to hear from our very own Chancellor Folt as she addresses her steps taken as a female scientist to become the first woman Chancellor at Carolina. We invite all graduate and undergraduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty and staff to attend. All genders are welcome.
