From a practical perspective, one of the most daunting challenges for beginning investigators is learning how to cram an impossible load of new obligations into a 24-hour day. Finding ways to manage the conflicting demands on your time can be a key to developing a successful career and a rewarding personal life. Our recent Postdoctoral Affairs Speaker Series Seminar held on 10/27/11 addressed this issue.
One of the postdoc who attended said this about the event and the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs:
“Thanks so much for organizing the time management workshop. The speakers had really helpful advice and offered good perspective on what to prioritize and how to do so. I appreciated that this, like all of the workshops you’ve coordinated that I have attended, was really well-focused on postdocs.”
Thank you Drs. Nikolajczyk and Weiss who have agreed to work with postdocs to present similar workshops on this subject in the future.
The Drop deadline for all GMS students is October 11th. Please complete an add/drop form and submit to registrar, Ms. Millie Agosto.
