Transitioning from a postdoc to positions in industry, government, scientific writing and many other avenues outside of academia can seem challenging and confusing. Join us as Dr. Julie Cramer and a panel of former postdocs describe how their training, as well as the proven tools of networking, specializing and volunteering successfully led them to their current positions outside of academia. After a brief PowerPoint presentation, Dr. Cramer and the panelists will provide insight that will help you take the necessary steps to find opportunities that will lead you to the next position in your career.
