Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer and Share Your Career Advice!

Application Deadline: April 29, 2022

Join us in Anaheim as a Mentor, Résumé Reviewer, or LinkedIn Expert! 

We need your help to create an amazing experience for students, postdocs, and other scientists at this year’s NBC! If you plan to join us in person in Anaheim, CA, May 9–12, there are a variety of volunteer opportunities that will expand your network while you share your expertise and help others learn and grow. 

You must be registered to attend NBC in person to participate in these activities.

Help Professionals Stand Out by Reviewing LinkedIn Profiles and/or Résumés

Time slots are available starting at 10:00 am PT each day of the meeting. 

Evaluate other professionals’ LinkedIn profiles and/or résumés to help them create a great first impression. Hiring managers have found this activity particularly rewarding. 

How It Works:

  • Sign-up to meet with emerging scientists at a designated time in a private space in the Solution Center.
  • Review emerging scientists’ LinkedIn profiles and/or résumés and provide tips.

You can make a lasting impact on a young scientist and help them grow a professional audience or find a new job.

Complete the volunteer form by April 29, 5:00 pm ET, and schedule your time slot!

Offer Career Advice at the Mentoring Breakfast

Wednesday, May 11, 7:30 am‒9:00 am PT 

AAPS needs experienced scientists from a variety of backgrounds—including academia, industry, and regulatory—to talk to students, postdocs, and other scientists about their career plans and goals over breakfast. The only qualification is your willingness to share what you have learned in your career!

By serving as a mentor, you give tomorrow’s scientists—and the future leaders of AAPS—the benefit of your experience through informal, one-on-one conversations. 

How It Works:

  • Sign-up to participate in the Mentoring Breakfast and upload your 1-page biography, which will be shared with attendees to help them connect with the right mentor.
  • Attend the Mentoring Breakfast, and chat with participants at your table about their goals and offer your advice.

Complete the volunteer form by April 29, 5:00 pm ET to reserve your seat
