Abstract: D02.00001 : Building Your Undergraduate Physics Career
6:00 PM–7:00 PM
Out of 100 physics bachelors, fewer than 5 will actually go on to hold permanent academic physics jobs. In this interactive workshop, students will learn the key aspects of a successful transition into physics careers, such as planning and self-assessment, informational interviews, effective resume writing, and more. Students will have plenty of time to ask questions, and will even get the opportunity to practice writing a skills-based resume for actual industry jobs on the APS/SPS job boards. Refreshments will be served.
The American Physical Society (APS) is a non-profit membership organization working to advance the knowledge of physics.
