Career Consultation

Would you like to discuss non-academic career paths with an SMDM member who works in or has transitioned into a non-academic career? Are you seeking feedback on a grant or manuscript from an expert in the field? Are you looking for an expert consultant on a grant proposal? Would you like guidance on negotiating through the tenure or promotion process from someone outside of your institution? Do you have other career questions?

SMDM offers members the opportunity for career consultation throughout the year. Members seeking advice and members interested in serving as mentors are invited to sign up for this career consultation service. Requests for consultation will be made on an as-needed basis, and signing up does not commit you to performing any of these tasks if you are unavailable at the time the request is made.

Please submit your requests for career consultation, or your willingness to provide consultation: please contact Mary Politi, Networking Committee Chair, in SMDM Connect. If you are requesting consultation, please indicate the career advice you are seeking. If you are signing up provide consultation, please indicate your area of expertise.
