As a materials scientist or engineer, you are a lot more valuable and have a lot more career opportunities than you realize.

The key to advancing in your career is being able to identify and articulate your unique value and problem-solving abilities to diverse decision makers. In this presentation, we will address the unique skill set that you have mastered simply by pursuing a degree in matsci/engineering and ways in which we can communicate that value to others who can make a difference in your career opportunities. We will discuss methods to best market yourself and amplify your brand (your promise of value) and your reputation.

Don’t ever undervalue and undersell yourself! You are essential to the success of organizations and let’s make sure we effectively and appropriately communicate that!
