Finding Your Pathway to Success
There are many roads that you can take to find career success and fulfillment. Many of us feel hindered by our own ideas of what our careers should be, based on our education and skill sets. This talk aims to show the many opportunities to apply your skills within the workforce. We’ll explore this through the experiences of neuroscientists and look at several case studies of basic science researchers who have utilized their knowledge to achieve success in careers they may not have anticipated.
