Wednesday, November 20, 1:55-2:45 pm, Career Connections Center, Reitz Union
In this workshop, you will learn how to market your experiences – whether they be study abroad/internships abroad, club or campus involvement, volunteering, or others – to employers. You will learn how to articulate your skills and how to best incorporate them into your written reflections (such as in electronic portfolios) or interviews.
UF Career Connections Center
The UF Career Connections Center offers a wide variety of workshops and career fairs to help UF Students with their professional development (not just for undergraduate students – for graduate students, too!). From major exploration to preparing for job searches or interviews, we have an event that will help you get where you need to be. Over 25,000 students used the career center last year to help them…will you?
Gator Professional Series (GPS) is a sequence of personal and professional development workshops that review skills and topics needed for you to become career ready.
Completing both GPS tracks will help you:
– Develop strategies for your job/internship search
– Craft your professional brand
– Discover the skills employers seek in a candidate
– Translate your UF experience and impact

DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program
The goal of the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is to prepare graduate students for science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission, by providing graduate thesis research opportunities at DOE laboratories.
The SCGSR program provides supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to pursue part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE laboratory/facility in areas that address scientific challenges central to the Office of Science mission. The research opportunity is expected to advance the graduate students’ overall doctoral thesis while providing access to the expertise, resources, and capabilities available at the DOE laboratories/facilities.
Deadline to apply: November 14, 2019

Research Abroad for Doctoral Students
The RAD program is changing for the 2019 academic year so that more doctoral students may participate and benefit from the program. The RAD program provides funding for travel and travel related expenses for doctoral students to travel abroad to collect data or to access resources not available on campus at partner institutions.
Stays abroad can range from four to six weeks. The program is not meant to fully support field research but rather to supplement ongoing doctoral research with resources available abroad. This opportunity is intended to enable doctoral students to expand their network of potential collaborators while also helping to build bridges between UF and international partners. There will be two tracks, one for STEM students and one for students in the humanities and social sciences.
Deadline to apply: October 18, 2019
