De-constructing and Re-constructing the Definition of Career Success from Traditional Models

Track: Career Development

Session Number: 1026
Date: Thu, Apr 20th, 2017
Time: 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Description:

Scientists are familiar with a traditional model of career success: namely, the progression towards a tenure-track faculty position. However, nearly 80% of scientific trainees end up in other positions such as industry or non-tenure-track positions. This session aims to uncover ways to highlight these important and valuable pathways. Using case examples and data, two experts in mentoring and career development will provide alternative descriptions of career success.
