SUMMARY: The Office of Experiential Learning and Career Advancement (ELCA) is proud to launch the SCEC Transitions Program to provide junior members of the SCEC community with resources and mentoring across key career transitions. At the 2017 SCEC Annual Meeting, ELCA will host two breakfasts to connect early career attendees with peers and mentors for the purpose of sharing experiences and strategies to navigate the challenging career transitions—from undergraduate to graduate school, from graduate school to professional career, from academia to industry...or back again.
