Using Workforce Data to Guide Career Development
A case-based workshop for trainees and/or faculty.
Many Ph.D. trainees are unaware of careers options available to them. Moreover, once identifying a career goal, many are uncertain as to what skills they must master to successfully secure positions. As the biomedical workforce continues to evolve, it is incumbent upon training programs to enable trainees to pursue the diverse pathways that are available to those with Ph.D.s in biomedical disciplines. We present a process by which we help our trainees through their career exploration by generating workforce data using Labor InsightTM software to help them make informed career decisions. Faculty and administrators learn how we use the data to inform curriculum development so as to enable trainees to fulfill their career goals skills.
