YCC and CSW hosted a career day workshop April 15th at ACS Headquarters.
The day started with three career overview presentations to give participants perspective on careers in academia, industry/consulting, and government. Next, a career panel with 7 CSW members gave thoughtful and interesting answers to audience questions, drawing from their diverse career experiences from professions such as patent law, defense contracting, teaching, research, and more. The last session of the day focused on interactive round-tables where participants could circulate between small group discussions on career skills and resources including Networking 101, ACS Career Resources, Navigating the Federal Hiring Process, and Resume Skills and Reviews.
Thank you to the 20 CSW members we had attend. Your participation and feedback will be essential to helping us plan more events like this in the future.
