Posted by on Friday, July 22, 2016 in Uncategorized .

Postdoctoral Fellows, if you have not already had the chance to attend, please come for coffee and pastries to a Postdoctoral ASPIRE Café for Career Planning session to learn more about the Vanderbilt ASPIRE Program and to explore topics in career development and professionalism. 

Our next meeting will be:

 “Crafting a Compelling Elevator Pitch”

What’s an elevator pitch and why would I need one anyway?  In this session we will discuss the fundamentals of the elevator pitch, identify places where you would use one and explore ideas about how you might tailor it to specific situations.  We will look at examples, craft our own, and take some time to practice them and provide feedback to one another. (Led by Ashley Brady)


Please see the ASPIRE website for details on upcoming sessions between now and December 2016!


ASPIRE Café sessions are organized by Ashley E. Brady, PhD., ASPIRE Program Manager.
