Career conversation roundtables
Facilitated by a mentor, these small group discussions will take place in a video chat room. They will be limited in size so you can ask your questions but also hear what others are asking. Each conversation will have a designated focus such as CV/résumé writing, designing science presentations, getting published, etc. These sessions are all about you – with no formal presentation by the mentors, discussions will be entirely focused on your questions.
