APS March Meeting 2017

Undergraduate Professional Skills Workshop for Non-Academic Careers

Monday, March 14
5:45 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

Convention Center, Room 303
Gray Arrow Session D10

Who Should Attend?
Undergraduate students and their mentors

Out of 100 physics bachelors, fewer than 4 will actually go on to hold permanent academic physics jobs. In this interactive workshop, students will learn about the key aspects of a successful transition into non-academic tracks, such as career planning and self-assessment, networking, effective resume writing, and more. Students will have plenty of time to ask questions, and will even get the opportunity to practice writing a skills-based resume for actual industry jobs on the APS job board. Light refreshments will be served.

Not required.
