This week Jason, Nikhil, and Abigail continue the discussion initiated in Episode 2 by Fatimah Williams Castro, PhD on how we should approach our career searches.

We then make public some “anecdata” while briefly summarizing the steps we are taking to 1) obtain skills inside/outside the lab and 2) initiate our career exploration. How can you “manage up”? Where do you find contacts to pursue job leads? Why would you want a treadmill desk? All this and more in Episode 3!

Thanks to everyone who has sent us feedback already, it’s been great and helpful so far. Extra thanks to our friends at for constantly contributing to a dynamic community.

You can learn more about American Journal Experts (the editing group Abigail works with) at, or the technology consulting group Jason works with at
