Dear Postdocs,

The Alliance for Career Advancement (ACA) is hosting a seminar in June on Networking.  Lauren Celano is the CEO and co-founder of Propel Careers, a life sciences career development firm based in Boston.  Lauren gave an excellent presentation and workshop on resumes & cover letters at the NatureJobs Career Expo on Tuesday.  I highly recommend this seminar for practical ways to improve your networking skills.
