What are the major career issues troubling you this holiday season?

Good Day Forum Audience!

As we get close to the New Year, it's always a good time to think about what we might do different in the future.

What are the major issues that are bugging you about your career as we close the year out? While the forum will not be continuing here, it will have a life again at another location, and we'll pick up the topic despite whether you post your concern today or on December 31.

Thanks for all that you've done to build a wonderful resource for young scientists.

I just turned down an offer to discuss a position that was a really good fit with my profile and that would have been a positive step from a career point of view. This would have included relocating to the US and unfortunately I have a family thing that needs to be resolved for this to be possible.

Otherwise a lot of things are changing in the company I work for. We still have significant growth and a lot of other things are changing. Together this should provide lots of opportunities during the coming years. Exactly how this will play out should become more clear during 2019.
