In the beginning of January, we posted a calendar with monthly steps to move your career forward. The February task was to meet with a career counselor. Here at OITE, we have two career counselors on staff. Anne and Elaine were kind enough to introduce themselves on the blog a couple of years ago. What makes them an enormous asset for you is that they exclusively advise scientists. They understand the career dynamics of fellows here at NIH and researchers in general. They have a wide breadth of knowledge and experience in career counseling and have already helped hundreds of fellows take the next step in their careers.
Whether you know where your career is heading or not, meeting with a career counselor can help you be more competitive in fulfilling your career goals. With the help of our two career counselors on staff at OITE, we have determined the top 7 reasons to visit a career counselor.
