What does strategy have to do with science? According to thought leader Isaiah Hankel, surprisingly a lot. Dr. Hankel has decoded the psychology behind career success and applied it to the science lab.

The result? Nothing short of a breakthrough in strategically maneuvering your career into the exciting new opportunities opening up for academic scientists.  

Here's a provocative question: What do students do now that applying for jobs with a resume does not work? What if you could tap into the skills that wildly successful people are using? 

You'll discover the strategic thinking driving this new career approach. You'll learn:

  • The 3 most important professional skills that will matter in the next 5 years.  
  • How the power of having a professional purpose will propel your career forward in the direction of your choice
  • How to leverage your degree for explosive success
  • How to remove barriers to business and entrepreneurship
  • How to access the key players in your chosen field

The goal? A career that you not only love, but one where you are recognized for you expertise and are rewarded for it. It's about being a leader, and creating meaningful bodies of work. It's about telling a story with your life that you'd want to read and share.
