Make a career in research
About this video
Strategic career planning is becoming increasingly important for all researchers. Whether you have already mapped out a path for the coming years or are still contemplating options, there is support available to help you.
In this webinar recording, you will hear from two experts with very different backgrounds and experiences – Natalie Lundsteen, PhD, Assistant Dean for Career & Professional Development at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and Heather Williams, Senior Product Manager for Mendeley Careers. The two share a background in research and a passion for their current work with researchers.
They discuss the importance of evaluating your options and the marketplace and explore the value of understanding yourself; what are your transferable skills, your preferences, and your personal situation?
You’ll come away with a clear understanding of why taking action should be the last step in the process – not the first – and you’ll pick up tips on how to deconstruct a job description and learn more about an organization before applying.
