STEM careers are in high demand: Make the most of your scientific career

Webinar: Wednesday, July 15, 2015, 12:00 PM ET

Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) professionals. Are you looking to advance your career? In the innovative economy of now and the future, STEM careers are uniquely positioned to make a real difference. LinkedIn, Indeed and Monster are filled with jobs for the STEM fields. Unemployment rates are lower for the science and engineering workforce than for the general population (NSF, Jan 2015). The future is STEM and careers in this field are expanding!

But how can you stand out as a STEM professional and advance your career? STEM careers are very unique, from their talent profile to their job descriptions. STEM professionals have very specific educational and experience requirements. Yet, all too often STEM professionals are more introverted, shy and hesitant and thus are less likely to reach out to people that can help further their career. How do you build relationships and market yourself to build and grow your career? 

When it comes to reaching your career goals, you’ve heard the saying “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know”. The truth is, it’s “what you know, who you know, who knows you and what they say about you” that drives your career. The goals you set, the relationships you build and your willingness to take action on your own behalf directly impacts where you go in your career.   

This HBA Metro chapter webinar will cover how networking and marketing yourself can create career opportunities and show you can compete. You need more than your STEM knowledge, related skillsets and training to advance your career. How can you stand out against others in the STEM disciplines and get people’s attention? You can make the difference and shape your future by clearly articlulating your goals, setting an action plan and building your network. Together, we will learn career management and personal branding tips to advance your career. Join us on July 15 at noon ET.
