Professional Development Series

This fall’s workshops focused on preparing students for a research showcase at a virtual conference.

Did you recently attend or present at a conference? Asking yourself,
Now what? Keep the momentum going! Networking can be scary.
Reframe ideas around networking to a relatable experience meeting new folks that are also super interested in the same things! Finding your community is what unites us as humans and creates a feeling of something bigger than ourselves. Come away from this workshop with actionable steps to build your community and allies regardless of what you’re hoping to achieve (i.e. an internship, full-time job, research assistantship, graduate program, a community that confirms your identity within your chosen field).

Each experience is unique and can be shared in a concise way that spotlights your strengths and opens the door to new opportunities to connect.
