Presenter: Lisa M. Balbes, Ph.D., Balbes Consultants, LLC
For a graduate student or post-doc, the question of “What do I do next?” can be quite daunting. Your entire career has been moving to the next logical level of “school,” but suddenly there is no more school to go to. You are told that you can do anything you want, but how do you know what that is? This session will help you evaluate your personal values, skills, abilities, and knowledge to understand what sort of career will fulfill you professionally. It also will discuss what actions you can take now to put yourself in the best possible position for wherever you choose to go.
