This workshop focuses on graduate students/postdocs preparing to enter the workforce.
Students entering the workforce consider careers in industry or academia. This workshop aims to provide some information on how to prepare for each of these careers, and highlight the skills and background potential employers are looking for when they evaluate candidates. While the specific technical skills required may vary from field to field and position to position, there are still commonalities in how academic and industrial employers evaluate applicants in the hiring process, which will be discussed in this workshop.
The format consists of short presentations by the panelists followed by questions from the audience.
Panelists: William Pick (University of Alberta), Vinay Prasad (University of Alberta) + one more TBD
