Dr. Peter Fiske is a nationally-recognized author and lecturer on the subject of leadership and career development for young scientists and engineers.


In a 2 hour workshop session at Caltech he will discuss the subjects of career planning and job hunting as a young scientist, focusing on:

  • building networks
  • writing strong CVs and cover letters
  • how to maximise the use of transferable skills to be of most value to potential employers.

In a separate seminar at USC he will focus on how to excel at interviews.

Both of these subjects will be of great value to anyone currently considering the next stage of their career!
