SPC will kick off the year with a Lunch & Learn event sponsored by Exponent. Dr. Lyons and Dr. Vargas from Exponent will talk about scientific consulting as another career opportunity for researchers. Have you wondered what consulting is about? These two Stanford alumni are here to discuss about their own experience as consultants and answer your questions about consulting as a career choice. As always, we will have lunch catered at the event.
On Thursday, September 28th, Stanford Polymer Collective (SPC) will be partnering with the Materials Research Society (MRS) and Exponent to run a resume and interviewing workshop. The purpose of this workshop will be to interact with recruiters from Exponent and learn how to refine your resume and interviewing skills. Expect to share your resume, meet your colleagues, and discuss general job-searching skills with scientists and engineers from Exponent.
