You’ve (hopefully) been to a few career fairs by this point in the year, but what other venues could help in your job search? A conference geared toward your interest is another great place to start networking & learning. The Third Annual Graduate Student Professional Development Conference will be held on campus at Thwing and Tinkham Veale University Center this upcoming Saturday, February 27, from 9 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. and it is FREE. This is your chance to network with your peers and learn some great tips from current industry leaders such as Zach Marks, co-founder and COO at OystirGoogle Oystir….you’ll be impressed!

Midterms are approaching and you may be sick of following up on all those jobs you’ve applied for but this conference may help you re-energize and focus. A conference lets you sit and listen, and socialize when you feel prompted. There is nothing to prepare. The organizers have prepared and then you get to choose what topics are most important to you. This conference lets you attend up to four sessions on a variety of topics, including:
  • Starting Business in Healthcare
  • Grant Writing
  • Job Offer and Salary Negotiation
  • Cover Letter Writing
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Communicating to Non-Experts
  • Leadership in Teamwork
  • What Careers Suit Me
  • How Employers Think and How to Use That to Your Advantage
  • Breaking Into Consulting
  • Breaking Into Biotech
  • Conflict Management
  • Culture Differences in Business Etiquette
  • Unconscious Skills and Communications
  • Tips for Applying to Non-Academic Jobs in STEM

So don’t waste your Saturday sitting at home mindlessly binge watching Netflix while occasionally skimming your notes or preparing a paper for class, or skimming CareerLink for a new job to apply for, instead get up and go to this FREE conference that is at your doorstep--on campus! Listen, question, talk and learn a new path to finding that career you deserve to love. You won't regret it. REGISTER HERE
