Dependable Strengths Workshop: May 1 & 4

Looking to start a career? Are you seeking a career change? Or, simply interested in exploring how to enhance your current employment situation? The Career Center’s Dependable Strengths Workshop is an excellent resource for alumni and students in any stage of career development and transition.

Friday, May 1st & Monday, May 4th , 2015
8:15am – 5:00pm

You will identify the unique strengths and talents you offer employers and learn how to leverage them to find a satisfying career. You’ll assess your strengths and open up new opportunities, identify what you enjoy, things you do well and events or experiences in which you take pride.

The Dependable Strengths two-day group process is designed for those interested in assessing their skills and combining them to open new windows of opportunities, with a focus on networking and a nontraditional job search process.

Cost for the workshop:

$100 for Current Students
$160 for UW Alumni Association members
$200 for non-UWAA alumni

$250 for Community Members (those unaffiliated with the UW)

For more information or to register for the Dependable Strengths 2 day workshop, please go to http://careers.uw.edu/DSSforAlumni.

What do past participants say about the Dependable Strengths Workshop?

• "I learned a new approach to career search and planning."
• "The program provides you with the tools to market yourself effectively."
• "I explored my strengths and talents from a different point of view – stepped out of myself and
evaluated my strengths in a very honest way to help me find my life work…"
• "It completely shifted my focus from ‘how can I fit into that job’ to ‘how can I highlight my strengths
and abilities which will lead to getting the right job for me’."
• "I was amazed at the feedback from my group members. They really keyed in on who I am."
• "I now have a concrete outline with goals on how to better conduct my job search."

Announcing the 2015 ASLO Science Communication Internship

The 2015 Association for the Sciences of Limnology & Oceanography (ASLO) Science Communication Internship will provide exposure to the many forms of science communication over a 14-week period beginning in September 2015 in the Washington, D.C. area. This is a paid internship and carries a stipend of $6000. The internship is available to current or recent graduate students in the aquatic sciences. Selection criteria include demonstrated interest in one or more aspects of science communication, strong communications skills, and excellent academic record.

The successful applicant will participate in a wide variety of communication projects in the areas of Policy, Education, and Public Outreach.

  • Policy. Get a first-hand look at how policy is formulated in the U.S. during the Geosciences Congressional Visits Day and by attending hearings and topical briefings on Capitol Hill.
  • Education and Outreach. Learn more about aquatic science education by participating with ASLO’s Education committees and in the COSEE Consortium. Reach the masses by designing part of ASLO’s exhibit for 2016 USA Science and Engineering Festival, which has an anticipated attendance of 300,000 people. Hone science writing skills by preparing material for ASLO’s social media channels.

Travel Funds. The intern will be assisting with the organization of events for the 2016 Ocean Sciences Meeting (February 2016, New Orleans, LA) and the USA Science & Engineering Festival (April 2016, Washington, DC). While these events take place after the conclusion of the internship, travel funds for the intern to attend and participate in both events will be available.
