Individual Development Plans for Students in the Sciences

myIDP (Individual Development Plan): Science CareersmyIDP is a free online career exploration and planning tool that helps graduate students and postdocs in STEM fields leverage their expertise into satisfying and productive careers. This Individual Development Program (IDP) framework was proposed by the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) and expanded by AAAS/Science and experts from several universities.

A similar tool, ImaginePhD, exists for students in the humanities and social sciences.
