Where Do I Go From Here?: A Practical Look at Career Exploration in Life Sciences

Where Do I Go From Here?: A Practical Look at Career Exploration in Life Sciences

 For every trainee, the question “Where do I go from here?” becomes ever important in the changing landscape of the life sciences industries, nationally and even here in Houston and Texas in general. Researchers and clinicians need to understand how their pluripotent training can be applied across this space and how to discover their potential career path, while realizing their importance in the scientific workforce development strategy for the region.

During this 90-minute session, Christopher Taylor, Associate Director for the Center for Professional Development & Entrepreneurship (CPD&E), will help participants understand how to answer this question and will give perspective as to the opportunities available to those willing to differentiate themselves. In addition, he will provide some practical strategies and tools to begin the discovery process surrounding the participant’s future career aspirations, while challenging each person to think “outside the box” when determining the next step. This seminar is important for anyone searching for answers in their career exploration process.
