An important part of The EMBO Meeting is skill development for young scientists - PhD students and early postdocs - who will soon face the decision whether to pursue a career within or outside of academia. A whole range of career activities arebeing organized for this audience - from Careers Day featuring several skills workshops, a mentoring session with leading scientists, to a job market where vacant positions are advertised.
Attending the career development workshops at The EMBO Meeting was very useful to me as I’m now at a changing point in my career. Talking to the speakers and facilitators made me aware of the possibilities, including ones outside of academia, that are available to me.
