Fellow's Council is a fellow-led committee that meets to form new initiatives, social opportunities and projects that support all fellows.

Fellows' College Career Night Key Takeaways:

  • The job search will be tougher this year due to Covid- never too early to start looking-right now, around September/October is ideal
  • Be open minded. Your first job may not be exactly what you expect but it could still be great. 
  • Talk to your mentors about your career goals. During COVID- ask for email or phone introductions.
  • It’s OK to cold-call (or email) places you’re interested in.
  • Be open to an instructor year if need to build on research portfolio and being able to get protected time 
  • Dont forget that you are marketable- so if a position is not working out, its usually not directly you. Be flexible but still try to have your must haves- ask re: career trajectory and even if more flexibility possible in latter years, can ask for it in writing
  • The BioSci Career Center is an under-utilized resource for Fellows, but can help with career counseling, prepping your CV, practice interviews, negotiating, etc. Email Debra Rosenfeld (drosenfe@stanford.edu) to set up a counseling appointment.
