Lauren presented to postdocs at Harvard Medical School on how to Navigate Career Choices. This is the 1st in a series of 5 seminars for the spring of 2023 at HMS
Navigating your career choices
This seminar provides tips and advice in order to structure an effective career exploration process and ultimately a career search. We will focus on important questions to ask in order to identify “drivers” that can influence career choices. Once identified, we will provide examples for how to leverage these drivers during a career search. We will cover a range of career paths outside of traditional academic PI and industry research roles in order to increase awareness of the numerous career paths available. We will talk about timing for these activities and how to track progress, focus your time and lessen the feeling of being overwhelmed. Lastly, we will provide tips for how to engage others to help you, so that you are not alone in this process.
