Just out this month is a new version of Science Careers’ Career Basics Booklet. Developed as part of the Science Careers Outreach Program 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.
