My Career Plan

One of the most common mistakes made by young scientists is that they begin with a search for specific jobs in specific organizations, neglecting the foundational steps of self-assessment, exploring a variety of career options, and developing a focused plan for their careers before beginning the job search. That would be like running an experiment and trying to collect data before determining the research question and research context. For that reason we recommend that you explore the following topics beginning with self-assessment, keep records of what you discover, and build a solid foundation for your current job search and those that will very likely follow in the future.
