Self-assessment helps you identify your skills, interests, values, and personal preferences in work styles and environments. Self assessment can assist you in developing career decision-making strategies and allow you to articulate your strengths in resumes and interviews. Make an appointment with Ryan Wheeler or Mike Matrone to review self assessment options and exercises.
The Career & Postdoctoral Services Office & the Society of Fellows arrange events to showcase a variety of career options. See: Career Workshop Series
Daphne Lurie & Ryan Wheeler co-facilitate a three-session Career Transitions Group to help postdocs and graduate students think through the decision of whether an academic career or other career options may be best for them. In a confidential small group environment, participants discuss how knowing their values, interests, skills, and goals can help them take their next step. Scheduling and registration details are announced to the postdocs email list and posted to the Career Workshop Series page. These sessions are facilitated by Mike Matrone at Scripps Florida.
The Career & Postdoctoral Services Office offers videotaped practice interview/feedback sessions in small groups. Postdocs and gradudate students hear constructive comments about their verbal responses and body language from the facilitators and their peers. Participants' responses are videotaped and critiqued on-the-spot as each person takes turns fielding standard HR screening questions. Scheduling and registration details are announced to the postdocs email list and posted to the Career Workshop Series page.
