Countdown to LPSC: What’s Your Goal?
What do you want to get out of next week’s conference?
Surprised? Confused? Doesn’t everyone go to a conference for the same reason?
Not by a long shot, my friend. Some go to catch up on the latest science results. Some want to hear about plans for future science missions. Some live to talk about science with their colleagues. Some are angling for new jobs. Some are going to form collaborations. Some just go for the beers.
You can go to further your career in many different ways — but you should recognize what your goal is, and plan your week accordingly. Take a minute. Think about it. If all goes as planned, what do YOU want to be different when you return from the conference at the end of next week?
