Negotiation Strategies for Academic and Industry Career Path Job Search – Rosanne Lurie (Director, qb3-Berkeley Graduate and Postdoc Career Development)

177 LSA, **12:30-1:30pm**.  Note our new time.

Dear fellow MCB postdocs,

Please join us Friday, January 10th to join a discussion with Rosanne Lurie (Director, qb3-Berkeley Graduate and Postdoc Career Development) on how to negotiate in the Academic and non-Academic job search process – at what time-point is this discussion appropriate and what are typical asks for an Academic start-up package or an Industry Scientist position?  Identifying and communicating what factors will help you to be maximally productive in your next position may be received favorably if applied appropriately.

As always, (free) lunch will be provided during this opportunity to learn in an informal Q&A format from the experience of our invited speakers and to network with departmental postdocs as we navigate career trajectories together.

PDLC is a great opportunity to get to know and network with your fellow MCB postdocs and to learn and discuss about topics relevant for you and your career inside and outside academia in an informal environment with FREE lunch. We usually have one or two guest speakers, who share their insider knowledge on a given topic ranging from the grant and faculty applications, to different career paths in industry and consulting. Attending events is a way for postdocs to leverage career connections via the MCB department to perform group informational interviews and get in touch with faculty and professionals for the next stages of our collective professional lives.
