Join us for two great Science Careers talks later this week at Ohio State University.

* Date: Thursday, September 3, 2009
* Location: Ohio State University, Biomedical Research Tower Room 105, Columbus, OH

Careers Away From the Bench - 1:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Could you be missing out on an exciting and rewarding career outside of academic or industrial research? Increasingly, Ph.D.-level scientists are becoming aware of other career opportunities beyond bench research. Join us at this workshop to consider what your own career path in these so-called "nontraditional" areas might look like. We'll discuss the types of alternative careers available, how to parlay your current skills and values into a new area, ways to research career options, and how to develop the skills you might need.

Creative Job Searching - 3:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Being able to submit job applications online makes searching for jobs outside of academia seem deceptively easy. In reality, finding a position, particularly in the current economic climate, may take more creativity. In this workshop, we'll talk about the importance of networking, how to market yourself properly, and other ways to get a leg up on the competition when applying for nonacademic jobs.
