This seminar is designed to be a call to action for doctoral students to take ownership of their career planning and professional development in the same way they are responsible for their scholarly development.
This seminar highlights the importance of early career planning and professional development to all career options, including careers in academia. Engaging in career planning and professional development early in your doctoral studies will provide you with a competitive advantage when you are ready to enter the workforce.
Appropriate for any doctoral student regardless of academic discipline or year of training.
Join current PULSE fellows at this open house to learn about how you can serve, live, and grow with PULSE during a year of service and leadership! This is a casual opportunity to learn more about PULSE, meet current PULSE fellows, check out one of the PULSE houses, and enjoy great food and drink.
The Environmental Health Fellowship Program is supported through a cooperative agreement between the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The goal of the ASPPH Environmental Health Fellowship Program is to provide professional training and opportunities for early career public health professionals by enabling them to work in EPA on current and emerging environmental public health needs.
As an advanced-degree candidate or postdoctoral trainee, it may seem that your academic training limits you, and is only applicable to a career in the professoriate. In the 21st century Knowledge Age, the academic skills that you have honed throughout your training will be highly transferable to a wide range of career paths. Your challenge is recognizing and translating your academic skills into concepts that are valued across employment sectors. During this workshop, you will reflect upon your academic skills sets and begin to develop a new mindset with regard to your place in the 21st century workplace.
Prepare for the Networking Breakfast by learning how to market yourself to potential employers and build meaningful relationships with alumni. Topics include conversation starters, developming a one-minute commercial, and how to follow up. RSVP on Pitt Bridges (pittbridges.pitt.edu)
