Nov. 16, 2016: Writing for Professional Development Workshop


We will be hosting our annual graduate writing seminar, sponsored by GSA and PROMISE AGEP! Our guest speakers will discuss writing topics for professional development. Susan Hindle, Assistant Director of Internships and Employment at the Career Center, will be talking about writing to acquire employment – personal statements, cover letters, resume. Susan will also likely touch on other resources available through the career center. Dr. Kevin Omland, Professor in the Biological Sciences Department, will discuss about writing for publications:  how to choose journals to submit to, how to evaluate those journals to curtail one’s own writing, how to improve one’s chances at finally acquiring publication. Please come to listen to seminars on writing for professional development! Refreshments will be served.

I am a current Master's student in the Biological Sciences Department of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. I work in Dr. Jeff Leips' research laboratory where I spend my time researching about genes that affect the immune system across age. While working on my thesis project, I had provided training in making laboratory solutions and in utilizing laboratory equipment (examples: WASPII plater, microinjector, ProtoCoL machine) to seven undergraduate students. During my time as a graduate student, I have directly managed and mentored six undergraduate students. I also work as a graduate assistant for both Maryland's PROMISE AGEP and the Campus-Wide Career-Life Balance Initiative at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, which officially launched in May 2015. For my graduate assistantship, I am establishing a website, which will serve as a central repository for career-life balance resources. Resources include, but are not limited to: career-life balance campus policies and seminars/workshops that advocate career-life balance and/or the wellness of the individual. While working on the website, I am assisting in organizing future career-life balance workshops and seminars. My main website is:
