Lauren will present on this important topic to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows at Tufts. A description of the seminar is below.
Navigating your career choices
This seminar provide 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.
