The Final Countdown: #HSS2015 Prep in a Nutshell November 1, 2015Posted by emmiemiller in Uncategorized.
It’s November, which means there are only a few more weeks before the annual meeting for the History of Science Society in San Francisco, California! Get excited! The Graduate and Early Career Caucus will be live and on the scene throughout the duration of the conference, running various events meant to serve graduate students and early careerists. Our events have been designed to promote networking and professionalization and to create an amiable environment for those of us in the early stages of our careers. That being said, here’s a quick line-up of what to expect! (Plus, an oh-so convenient infographic!)
Mentorship Program: It’s not too late to sign up for some one-on-one time with a senior scholar! This is an amazing opportunity to network, ask for advice, and receive guidance about your career from a new perspective (i.e. not your adviser!) Click this link or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline: November 6th
CV Review: Meet face-to-face with a senior scholar and get feedback on your CV, cover letters, and the interview process. Interested? Click the link. Sessions available Friday afternoon (Nov. 19) and all day Saturday (Nov. 20).
Workshop and Business Meeting: Following our brief business meeting, we will be hosting a workshop on publishing, led by Elsevier’s history of science editor! Saturday, November 20th, 12pm (see program for locations)
GECC Mixer: Meet other grad students and early careerists at our mixer, hosted at the Golden Gate Taproom. Thursday at 9PM
