Career Trends booklet: Developing Your Skills
Each year, Science/AAAS writes and produces a Career Trends resource guide on career development issue. This year's Career Trends focuses on "Developing Your Skills."
Making any kind of career transition requires that you review your skills to evaluate where your strengths lie, but scientists often discount skills they have learned in graduate school and/or in the lab. In some cases, they may not even consider such skills as being applicable to life beyond the lab. In this career collection, we examine what skills make you marketable and how you can build on your experiences to help you transition to the next phase of your career–and be confident that you have the skills you need to get the job done.
