Talk Description

The last session of this series will focus on the first year in your new position. Discussions will touch on how to wrap up the remaining tasks of your PhD and what to expect, what is expected, and barriers or struggles you may face in the new job. This is really an opportunity to have an open conversation with panelists about the transition from graduate school to a post-PhD position whether it is in academia, industry, or government.

Hosted by CUAHSI and AGU H3S

Every Thursday in September, the AGU Hydrology Section Student Subcommittee (H3S) will be holding a joint cyberseminar with CUAHSI aimed to provide guidance for students and early career scientists who are or will soon be navigating the job application process. This series will be a four-part cyber-panel with weekly topics including: 1) the pre-application phase (i.e. when and how to start), 2) the application phase (i.e. materials and interviews), 3) the post-application negotiations, and 4) the job transition. Each panel will include members from academia, government, and industry positions and comprised of a discussion and Q&A session.
