Professional Development Summer 2016

There will be two professional development programs, on June 16-17 and July 11-12. The June 16/17 event will focus on professional skills directly related to the math community (applying for jobs, preparing for quals, developing a website, etc.). The July 11/12 seminars will focus on more general professional / life skills (time and stress management, eating healthy on a grad student budget, how to manage your finances, etc.) which will be led by several speakers from different departments across campus.
