Personalized MATRIX Career Planning Meetings with Dr. Harper and Dr. Bennett

December 2021

MATRIX Scholars met individually with Dr. Harper and Dr. Bennett for an open discussion with constructive feedback about their future plans in academia, industrial research or other career trajectories. During these one hour sessions, trainees evaluated their Career Development Plan, a self-evaluation report detailing: a vision of their future career direction; their short, medium and long-term career goals; and the skills they possess, and those required, to achieve their goals.
