Stories Behind the CV: A Career Exploration Town Hall
March 14, 2018
When exploring possible careers, we often hear descriptions of career paths that sound so straightforward, but what is hiding behind all those successes? What are the real stories behind a neatly written CV? These are the stories our speakers will share from during this event. Hear from professionals who have successfully hurdled the pitfalls of their career path, and the lessons they learned along the way as they compare their “Career Talk” to their “Stories behind the CV”.
Take the online course "Scientists Teaching Science" and learn about active vs. passive learning, creating course objectives and test items, and finding ways to improve your teaching and assessment techniques for students of all ages.
Burnout is a systemic issue faced by scientists at all levels. It’s driven by heavy workloads, inconsistent feedback, and unhealthy mindsets that are reinforced among colleagues and mentors.This webinar will outline the causes and symptoms, as well as 5 strategies that you can start implementing today to address or prevent burnout.
The Junior Academy recruits STEM experts to coach teams of talented, highly motivated students as they compete in science & technology challenges sponsored by industry-leading companies. Students and mentors can participate from anywhere in the world, connecting with one another via Launchpad, our interactive challenge platform.
Available exclusively to our Member community, Member-to-Member Mentoring is a self-directed mentoring program that matches early career scientists and engineers with experienced STEM professionals for advice and coaching.
For 200 years—since 1817—the Academy has brought together extraordinary people working at the frontiers of discovery. Among the oldest scientific organizations in the United States, it has become not only an enduring cultural institution in New York, but also one of the most significant organizations in the global scientific community.
