Changing Careers: How to Make a Successful Career Transition: Wednesday, October 28, 2020
Date & Time
Wednesday, October 28, 2020, 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM

How do you decide if and when is a good time to make a change in your career? And once you decide to make a change (or have that decision made for you), how do you go about it? This session will begin with a discussion of the steps you can take to transition into a new career, with a special focus on academia to industry or research to industry. Then, a panel of AVS members who have made these transitions will share their personal experiences, and engage in a discussion with small groups of attendees. Students, early career and mid-career professionals can all benefit from learning:

  • How to know when it’s time for a change
  • Identifying non-academic positions and career paths
  • Determine what is right for you
  • Tap your professional resources
  • Grow your professional network
