Helping intramural trainees and fellows take the next step in their educational or career journey.
The OITE Career Services Center offers many resources to meet your career development needs. We have two main units, one focusing on educational advising and the other on career advising. Wherever you want to go, we are here to help you get there. Our services are based on these core values:
- There is no such thing as an alternative career -- all careers are valued and important. We are happy to support you in exploring careers in healthcare, research, administration, education, policy, technology transfer, business, etc. We will also assist you in exploring non-STEM related careers.
- While others may wish to weigh in, you get to choose. We are here to support you in considering various pressures influencing your decision, whether they are your own pressures or pressures from others.
- We are here to support you in making decisions that are consistent with your goals and values. We may offer observations and input, but we will not tell you what you should or should not do.
- We will be kind. While we are responsible for offering our expert guidance and may share difficult input about your application materials or current preparation for various opportunities, we endeavor to meet you where are and to be supportive in the process.
We provide support and programs for summer and academic year interns, postbacs, graduate students, postdocs, clinical, and research fellows across the entire intramural research program. Our expertise is relevant to all employment sectors and careers. We can assist you in exploring your options and assessing your preparation; applying for educational programs, postdoc positions, and jobs; and in all elements of the application, interview, and negotiation process. We also coordinate programs with OITE well-being advisors to provide you with holistic support to explore barriers to your success and manage the stress inherent in the career decision-making process. Engage with us throughout your training experience and use our resources to advance you career and shape your future!
