Welcome to Mentoring and Career Advice, your portal to career and professional development resources from Pathfinder. AGU offers several mentoring programs at various meetings that provide support for students and early career scientists.
Mentoring is no longer exclusive to scientific conferences! This mentorship opportunity allows mentors to advise and share professional knowledge with mentees anywhere in the world. Participants currently span 50 countries and six continents. Go global with your science and apply to be a mentor or mentee today!
Transitioning into a permanent position from a doctoral program or a postdoc can be difficult. The goal of the AGU Mentoring Network program is to build professional networks, open opportunities, and reduce obstacles for early career scientists in the Earth and space sciences. Each mentoring network is composed of two senior scientists and six early career scientists. Share your experiences and support fellow burgeoning scientists. Mentor applications are closed for 2018. Mentee applications will open on 26 April 2018.
MENTORING AT MEETINGS
Mentoring365 Live is an in-person mentoring program at Fall Meeting, available for scientists at any career stage. With Mentoring365 Live mentors and mentees are paired through our online platform based on the needs of the mentee and expertise of the mentor. Mentors can provide advice that ranges from resume or CV feedback to guidance throughout the Meeting. The program provides mentors and mentees with structured, relationship-building tools to develop and accomplish their focused career goals.
Sharing Science will help connect graduate students with established scientists who are engaged in sharing their science with public audiences. This supports students who are beginning their scientific careers and hoping to find support for engaging in science communication and outreach.
