Just out this month is
a new version of Science Careers’ Career
Basics Booklet. Developed as part of the Science
with sponsorship from the Department of Defense’s Science, Mathematics
and Research for Transformation (SMART) program, the booklet is a
collection of articles from the virtual pages of Science Careers. It has all the
information that you need to get your career on the right track:
articles and resource lists provide information on choosing a career
path, marketing yourself, skills needed in different career paths,
and diversity issues.
The Outreach Program
runs career development programming for early career scientists at
various venues. Approximately 25,000 print copies of the first
version of the Career Basics booklet, printed in 2007, have been
distributed and many more people have accessed it online.
As a reader of Science
Careers, you may have read these articles before, but it’s
a great way to introduce others to the wealth of resources that
Science Careers has to offer.
The new booklet is
available here as a pdf.
