Monthly Lunch & Learn

Are you brand new to LinkedIn and not sure where to start? Or you got your LinkedIn profile but not sure how to engage with your network on LinkedIn?  Do you want to learn how to setup and maximize your LinkedIn profile? How to build your network quickly on LinkedIn? How to use LinkedIn Groups to expand your network? How to integrate LinkedIn into your overall professional development plan?

Join us for our August Postdoc Lunch & Learn, which will be on LinkedIn and how to use it for career and professional development. Amy Gleason, Program Manager and Career Coach from University of Utah Alumni Career Services, will lead this session.

The event will be held from 12:00 – 1:00 pm on Wednesday, August 16th in HSEB 2600.

Pizza (including vegetarian options) will be provided! If you plan to attend, please RSVP here.

Lunch between Postdocs

This is a new event UPDA has initiated where postdocs will meet up once a month for lunch. This is a very good opportunity to make new friends, learn about different research & career areas and gather together for some fun time. Stay tuned for the time and place for next month’s networking lunch!

Our next lunch between postdocs will be held on the 30th August, Wednesday 11.45 am at VA Farmers Market.  It is an opportunity to meet your fellow  postdocs, to discover the VA farmers market and to listen live music! The location is outside the canteen, between buildings 7 and 8. Feel free to bring your own food. We are impatient to see you all on 30th!
