Please join the East Coast ChIPs Chapter in discussing strategies to inject energy into your career. Have you been focusing on one area for too long? Have you been thinking about a change, but haven’t figured out what, exactly, you want to do next? Are you looking for your next steps mid-career, either internal or external? This program is about putting ideas into action. Every participant will leave the event with at least three steps to find and maintain career fulfillment.
