The Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) is pleased to announce its Fall 2013 Career Development Webinar Series, highlighting a sample of the career opportunities available to graduates with degrees in the sciences. The speakers in this series represent a cross-section of the worlds of academia, government, and non-profit work. All have (or are nearing completion of) advanced degrees in the earth, physical, or biological sciences. Many have polar connections.
Each webinar will begin with a brief introduction by the speaker, who will give a broad overview of his/her own career path, the challenges and rewards, the day-to-day experience, and the reasons for choosing this particular focus. After this introduction, a period of discussion will begin, in which audience members can ask questions of the speaker. Each webinar will last approximately one hour and will be broadcast online using the GoToWebinar platform. APECS looks forward to your participation!
This week we will have two webinars in that series:
