STEM Career Services Workshops
STEM Career Services conducts a variety of career-development workshops at universities, institutes and conferences across the country. These workshops are targeted toward graduate students and postdocs to help them identify desirable careers and to equip them with the tools and skills necessary to successfully apply for positions, excel at interviews and land rewarding jobs. We will gladly host an event at your location and are happy to customize workshops and cover other topics based on your needs.

“We recently invited Josh Henkin from STEM Career Services to speak to our postdocs about how to successfully apply for non-academic positions. While I initially thought it would simply provide our postdocs with an opportunity to hear from someone other than me about tailoring resumes appropriately, I realized while listening to Josh’s presentation that I had been unintentionally only providing our postdocs with part of the picture all these years…What Josh provides is direct experience as an industry hiring manager that most of us in career services/postdoc offices do not possess. Because of the credibility that his background as both a PhD and hiring manager provides, the postdocs listened, and because of his ability to give specific examples from his first-hand experience reviewing resumes and hiring PhDs, our postdocs immediately connected with his message and were able to put into practice what I, admittedly, have often struggled to get them to do over the course of many sessions. All of us in the office agree that if you want your students and postdocs to receive high-impact training that they will immediately absorb and put into practice, inviting STEM Career Services to guide them through the process of drafting and tailoring a resume will be one of the best decisions your institution can make for its trainees interested in non-academic careers.”
