In the United States today, the supply of PhDs in STEM fields exceeds academia’s demand for these scientists. According to the National Science Foundation, less than 15% of students who graduate with a PhD in a STEM field will find a tenure-track faculty position within six years of graduating. Fortunately, PhDs can find many rewarding careers outside of academia by understanding the value of peer mentoring and networking strategically.

In this seminar, Dr. Fortis Santiago will describe strategies and give advice to cultivate personal and professional networks. Participants will assess their current network in order to reach full potential.

This seminar will cover:

  • Current network assessment
  • Mentee etiquette
  • How to establish long term relations
  • Differences between sponsors, mentors, and advisors
  • Informational Interviews

This seminar will include interactive exercises on the following topics:

  • Small-group activities to help attendees asses their current network
  • Practice active listening
  • Promote interaction among attendees to facilitate the identification of future mentors and to expand their network
