Getting Started

Our professional development roadmap for postdocs is designed to help you navigate your path toward a successful career. Download a PDF of the roadmap.

We hope that you will take advantage of these opportunities to advance your professional development while you are a postdoctoral scholar at Georgia Tech:

 


Individual Career Advising

One-on-one career advising is available to postdoctoral scholars.  With individual advising, we can help you:

  • explore career options,
  • define career goals,
  • develop a plan for development of professional skills,
  • develop effective job application documents, and
  • prepare for job interviews. 

To set up an appointment for career advising, email postdocs@gatech.edu

  • Grant and Fellowship Applications
  • Job application documents (Resumes/CVs, Cover Letters, Etc.)
  • Articles for Publication
  • Research writing and scholarship
  • Conference presentations, job talks, powerpoint presentations, and public speaking
