May 10 is the Annual NIH Career Symposium in Natcher (aka Bldg 45) from 8:45 AM to 4:15 PM. This event is a great way to jumpstart your career. The Program Book has been posted (we will have paper copies too).
Even if you have not yet registered, I invite you to come. This event will feature over 70 scientists in different career paths to help you navigate your own personal career choices. You can come to all panels, or just a few-whatever fits your career needs.
This year we will have light refreshments in the morning and afternoon sponsored by the NIH Federal Credit Union
(and PS-Management Bootcamp apps are due May 10 if you are interested)
If you cannot come, we will post a written synopsis in about a month of each session at www.training.nih.gov/nih_career_symposium (the symposium cannot be videocast).
