Early Career Professionals Speed Networking Event

Sunday, January 10 from Noon to 1:30 p.m. Career development and networking can be time consuming, so AAPToffers a fun and exciting way to get connected to a large number of early career and seasoned physics professionals in a short amount of time. Speed-networking provides the opportunity to discuss career goals and challenges with a new contact for five minutes, exchange information, and then move on to the next person. By the end of the event each participant will have meaningful interactions with over half a dozen colleagues and the opportunity to meet many more. If you think you made a good contact, follow up with the person and schedule a time to meet for coffee. It's that simple! By the end of the first day of the conference you would have already made several personal connections with other attendees. If you have business cards, don't forget to bring them.
