This Halloween, instead of turning into a ghoul, BEST recommends pushing yourself beyond your comfort zone via exposure to business and management skills, useful in whatever career you will end up in. A good investment of your STEM PhD and postdoc time. We suggest to prioritize your professional development goals on an equal level with your research goals. Incorporate these skills into your individual development plan. They might even help you achieve your research goals faster!
Here's a short list to investigate further to see how they fit into your schedule and the time you have allotted to your career development. Contact us if you would like to connect with other BESTies who have taken these courses before.
Another sensational resource is the virtual career center at SciPhD. Check out their videos to learn about the skills you should beef up and how to describe your research more clearly to a non-academic audience.
