The Business of Science: Your Guide to Career Success
Session 1: Business of Science and Communications
Session 2: Developing People, Negotiating with your Advisor, and Building Effective Teams
A new training for fellows and graduate students interested in pursuing a career in industry, the course is designed to translate academic research skills into the business-oriented qualifications that hiring companies are looking for. Course instructors will hone into common research practices that academic scientists are already familiar with, to help in the understanding of business concepts, and to demonstrate how your own experiences can mold you into a competitive job candidate.
This course is by pre-registration only. If you would like to learn more, please contact Dr. Yvette Pittman at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Fellows Social Networking (FSN) event
Beginning this month, the NICHD Fellows Advisory Committee will host a “Fellows Social Networking (FSN)” event four times a year at Tapp’d, a local restaurant in Bethesda.
This will be a great opportunity for the NICHD fellows community to socialize and network with each other. All current trainees within the institute are welcome, and we plan to invite a NICHD fellow alumnus, representing a different career path, for each of the dates listed below.
We hope you can join us for our inaugural event! Future 2018 FSN events will occur on May 24, July 26, and October 25, from 5:30 – 7:30 PM.
Please RSVP with Dr. Yvette Pittman (email@example.com) if you plan to attend.
