12 - 13 October 2021 - GSA Neo 

Details: Join us during Earth Science Week for two online sessions of workshops, presentations and panel discussions designed to give Early Career Geoscientists the competitive edge, increase confidence and expand their community.  Being an Early Career Geoscientist in the Earth Sciences is not always easy. Entering the workforce and progressing in your career can be difficult without transferable skills, so valuable in the workplace but hard to learn on your own. You can also feel lost when navigating the complex intersection between academia, government and industry.  GSA NEO is a new initiative from the Geological Society of Australia designed to provide Early Career Geoscientist new skills, new knowledge and new confidence for the workplace
 Over two afternoon sessions, a mix of professional trainers, geoscience leaders and ECG panellists will discuss:
Selling yourself – hone your pitch for job applications, interviews and presentations
Overcoming adversity – build resilience and triumph through challenges
Developing relationships – improve your networking skills and bring people together
Inspire you – learn how other professionals got ahead and found success
