EXPERIENCES 2016 lunch and learnWhat are you doing after you finish your pre- or postdoctoral training? 

If that question makes you sweat, the UAB EXPERIENCES program can help. All trainees need to be informed and educated about careers within and outside traditional academic research to be job-ready in today’s economy.

UAB EXPERIENtial Learning for Career Enhancement in the Sciences (EXPERIENCES) is a professional development initiative that introduces UAB graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to emerging career options in the sciences. UAB EXPERIENCES leads its participants through creating an IDP and self-assessments and offers boot camps, shadowing and immersion experiences.
