Recharge and Refocus

Fall is a great time to recharge and refocus.

Here are my top tips:

Reevaluate your goals:

At the beginning of the year most of us make our New Year’s Resolutions. The fall season is a good time to check your progress. Did you achieve your goals? Do you need to redefine them? What are your next steps? There is still time to make some changes.

Re-network:

Hopefully you improved your networking game this year. If not, you still have time. Step outside of your comfort zone and meet new people. This should be pretty easy because there are many career fairs, new student orientation, and many networking events during the fall. Take advantage of this season to broaden your network.

Mentoring:

Everyone should have a mentor. Become a mentor, find new mentors or do both! Do you remember when you were starting college? Your first job? Here’s a quick story. When I started college I was very shy. I didn’t know anyone at my university. So I decided to join a group for women in STEM at Penn State. By joining this group I was able to meet other young women in STEM and build friendships. Also, I was able to find mentors. The fall is a great time to mentor a young scientist AND find a new mentor for yourself.

  1. basically, we only have drought and typhoon seasons here in the Philippines. I feel so envious for countries that actually experience the dramatic changes of the seasons. 🙂
