Preparing for Professional Careers

A Workshop for postdocs from Human Workflows, LLC Tuesday, April 22 9:00 am – 4:00 pm Feinstone Hall, School of Public Health, Room E2030 Presented by the PDO and the JHPDA Being competitive and successful as a professional scientist, regardless of whether in an industry or academic setting requires mastery of scientific, business and social skills. Running an effective laboratory operation is like running a small business, and can benefit from applying best practices that have been developed by industry. In “Preparing for Professional Careers” we will look at how your scientific/technical skills combined with your business skills and social skills together make up the three identities that define your brand. The same competencies that industry requires in order to be successful are equally important in developing and co-existing in a high-performing team in academic settings Learn about 24 business competencies valued by employers. Understand how they relate to your postdoctoral research experiences and to job ads. Gain insight into how employers see academic scientists like you, and use that knowledge to advance your career. You will take an online self-assessment that profiles your own competencies in these 24 areas and generates a detailed report. Breakout sessions and personalized discussion will show you how to use your new knowledge of your competencies when applying for jobs.
