With every issue of this newsletter, I’m impressed by the number of opportunities available to fellows at the NIH, especially within the NICHD. A big thank you to all of the volunteer writers for creating a resource-rich theme this month. Inside, trainees from postbacs to postdocs share NIH support program information, an “Interesting Opportunity” article, and workshop recaps on networking and medical/graduate school applications.
In particular, I’d like to draw your attention to Yvette Pittman’s announcement that she is hosting a new “Resume Hour” each week. For one hour every Wednesday, she will sit with fellows to discuss resume and CV preparation. Please do consider stopping by! A successful career requires active management. Shaping your resume or CV is a great place to start.
If you’d like to read other articles about NIH resources by NICHD fellows, please visit our newsletter homepage and scroll down to find our “Regular Feature” list on the left side of the screen. You’ll find articles covering NIH and NICHD resources within several of our regular columns, including “Former Fellow Follow-up,” “Interesting Opportunity,” “Thoughts of a Postbac,” “The Arts,” and “Event Recaps.”
If there are other topics of importance to you, please feel free to contact us. After all, this newsletter is a resource for you.
