Do you have questions or need advice from someone who can more closely relate to what you are going through in graduate school? Sometimes the most helpful and relatable mentors are people who are only a few years ahead of you in the same process. WinS invites you (especially 1st-3rd year students) to join us for some light refreshments and helpful conversations with more experienced graduate students (4th-6th year students). After all, it has only been a few years since they, too, had to navigate graduate school challenges such as choosing a thesis lab, passing quals, applying for a fellowship, publishing papers and exploring their next career move in a challenging job environment. Older students will be at this event to answer all of your questions and share the important lessons they have learned from their own graduate school experiences.
We welcome and encourage participation from all genders, as these topics are relevant to all! Light refreshments will be served.
This event is sponsored by Women in Science (WinS) at UNC. Register here: http://tinyurl.com/nj8vwls
