In case you missed it, my Bio Careers webinar “How to Develop a Career Exit Strategy” is now available on demand. You can find the archived video and a description of the webinar below. Feel free to reach out to me with any follow-up questions on the topic or if you need help in brainstorming exit strategy options.
Description: Do you know what you would do if your research or teaching position ended in a few months? With the volatile nature of science funding, early-career scientists need to plan ahead for unexpected career transitions.
In order to avoid panicking and taking the first position that comes your way, an exit strategy can be deployed, while refocusing efforts on your ultimate career goals. This strategy can be a short-term position, volunteer work or other activity to stay active in your field and maintain a professional image.
In this webinar, we will discuss exit strategy options, how to use an exit strategy to enhance your skill sets and ways to keep moving forward during career transitions. For more information on the concept of a career exit strategy, read the Bio Careers blog post “What’s Your Career Exit Strategy?” by Donna Kridelbaugh in advance of the webinar.
