Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


APECS and the YES Network hosted a career discussion townhall meeting at the EGU 2011 Assembley. This session focused on addressing some of the key factors in aligning graduate aspirations with employer needs - and the videos are now available! Following brief presentations by a panel representing students, academia, and industry the floor was opened for discussion (both in the room and simulaneous webcast). Conversation revolved around career development as a graduate, placement past graduation, and what can be expected from both the employer and the employee.
