Are you a student interested in gaining career advice from a seasoned scientist? Or, are you a professional with words of advice to pass along to students and emerging professionals? If you fit in either category, please join us at the Mentoring Breakfast to engage in informal, one-on-one conversation related to career development and, if desired, to find an appropriate mentor-mentee match. No sign-up needed; breakfast will be served!

Career Development Sessions

The goal of this year’s career development program is to help participants develop skills in collaboration and communication, giving them the experience and tools they need to become the team players and team leaders that human resources professionals and top-level management are seeking. AAPS is creating an interactive career development program that encourages participants to discuss their questions and real-life problems with their peers, and to experiment with new skills. Don’t miss these sessions!
