Colin and Anthony are passionate about providing career development services to those wishing to make a transition out of the academic laboratory. Representatives of White Consulting, LLC have spoken at science careers fairs, sat on post-doctoral association discussion panels, and lectured both graduate students and post-doctoral fellows on a variety of topics relevant to transitioning into a non-academic career. We pride ourselves on taking the time to make sure that all those in attendance gain an appreciation for the importance of the skills necessary to move outside the academic world.

This in depth workshop takes the audience through a series of interactive exercises that leaves each individual with a clear understanding of what is necessary to strongly position your non-academic resume, as well as various techniques to both appreciate and showcase your transferable skills. Members of the audience work together in small groups to complete a variety of exercises ranging from how to write a strong professional summary through formatting and submission of the final document. Please join us for a fun, interactive workshop with members of White Consulting, LLC. A light meal will be served after the workshop during our post-seminar networking event.

Managing Impostor Syndrome and Perfectionism in Your Career – Live Event – January 8th 4-5pm on the Boston Campus!

Posted on Updated on

Registration is free, but required. RSVP here: https://tuftspdaperfectionism.eventbrite.com/ (password: tuftspda)

Location: Boston Campus, M&V 412

Time: Friday, January 8th from 4-5pm with pizza and networking after Steve’s talk!

Join us for a workshop on managing impostor syndrome and perfectionism during your career with Steven Steinke, LICSW and staff clinician at Harvard University Health Services. Steve has been serving the Harvard University graduate population since 2008 and has counseled many researchers on how to channel their perfectionistic drives to benefit, rather than harm their personal and professional lives.

Many graduate students and postdocs often feel inadequate or not competitive with their peers, despite years of advanced training. These feelings often curb exploration and the courage to delve into new experiences, in fear of exposing failure, ultimately harming the career potential of extremely talented and driven scientists and other researchers.
