    Getting to Your Own Emerald City: Guidance for Successful STEM Career Pathways
    The challenges and complexity of 21st century society necessitate a scientifically-informed US policy, economy, and global competitiveness. To accomplish this, we need top scientists conducting research and disseminating findings broadly and teaching science; science embedded in leadership in all sectors, government, education, nonprofit, and business; and, a scientific-literate public. A broad range of career options are available to PhD scientists and engineers to support such a strong science society. Dr. Holly Falk-Krzesinski will discuss her personal career journey as a scientist and administrator in the pharmaceutical, academic, and research information sectors and how she leveraged her professional network and ongoing professional development opportunities for career advancement. She will share insight about how all graduate students and postdoctoral fellows can plan for a successful career pathway through effective collaboration and networking, and speak about her jobs in research development, research intelligence, and strategic alliances.
