Finding a Job
Jobs that you will be offered will rarely come out of the blue. The most important advice for any science student is this: NETWORK.
How do you network, you ask?
- Do your research with intention to publish!
- Join scientific societies relevant to your research (i.e. American Anthropological Society, AAFS, etc...)
- Present your work at conferences (poster or talk)
- Go to Grand-Rounds or smaller local meetings or symposia (where you can meet faculty and scientists more informally)
- Seek opportunities to do some external internships
- Have a LinkedIn profile that is thorough
- Have both a good resume (usually 1 to 2 pages) and a complete curriculum vitae (CV), which has your entire academic and professional info (education, experience, skills, references, publications, current and past research projects, talk presented at conferences or invited, etc.)
