Summary

This annual feature of the ASIS&T Annual Meeting presents panelists prepared to address audience questions on such topics as the traditional academic job market, alternative career paths including post-doctoral opportunities, the development of personal research agendas and the challenges of online instruction. The purpose of this panel is to provide an interactive platform for faculty members at all stages of their careers to provide advice and input for doctoral students nearing the completion of their doctoral work. The format allows audience members to ask questions of the panelists anonymously if they wish. While doctoral students ending their programs might find this session most useful, in recent sessions, both doctoral students beginning their doctoral work and new assistant professors found much to recommend about this panel.
