The major goal of the professional development subcommittee has been to advance interactions between non-academic scientific professionals and trainee scientists, and to provide more opportunities for students and postdocs to evaluate and pursue careers in non-academic settings.

Ongoing projects include:

  • Posting career questionnaires from scientists in non-traditional careers on the COMPASS Careers Perspectives page.
  • Organizing one-on-one CV review, professional development workshops, career coaching and vendor networking events at the Career Center.
  • Assisting in organizing and recruiting speakers for Career Panels at the Annual Meeting.
  • Expanding and promoting ASCB career development online resources.
