APECS/YES Networking Event at EGU

Aisling Dolan
Dear All,

For those of you attending the EGU General Assembly meeting next week, there is a brilliant occasion for networking being organised by APECS (Association of Polar Early Career Scientists - www.apecs.is) and the YES Network (Young Earth Scientist - www.networkyes.org).  So if you are in Vienna, please come along.

**Networking event: Tuesday 5th April, 20:30 at Café Einstein, Vienna**

This event will be held on Tuesday 5th April at Café Einstein
(http://einstein.at/cms/uk/) and will provide a fantastic opportunity to meet polar and geoscience early-career scientists from around the world.  Drinks and nibbles will be provided to facilitate networking, so please join in what promises to be a really fun evening.

We will meet at Café Einstein at 20.30, but the networking event will directly follow the YES Network -APECS Townhall Meeting at 19.00:

"Career Development: How Can We Integrate Graduate and Employer Needs?"  Further details below.

Hope to see as many of you there as possible!

Kind regards,

Aisling Dolan (UKPN and APECS), Inès Borrione (APECS) and Jo Venus (YES President)

The EGU 2011 APECS-YES networking event has been kindly sponsored by SCAR and AGU.

TM4 - Career Development: How Can We Integrate Graduate and Employer Needs?

Date: 5 April 2011
Time: 19:00 - 20:00 (Vienna, Austria)

This townhall meeting will aim to address some of the key factors in aligning graduate aspirations with employer needs. We will have a panel of speakers that include representatives from geoscience early-career networks (e.g. YES Network - www.networkyes.org, and the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists - www.apecs.is ), representatives from geoscience employers, recent geoscience graduates, and current geoscience students.

We will be drawing on experience and knowledge gleaned from the YES Network's Decision Points survey that has been running since late 2010. This meeting will not only identify aspirations and requirements, but also aims to improve graduate-industry communication via future actions identified during this meeting.

The town hall meeting will be a live web-cast. Web-based participation is free. Registration details are posted on the YES Network's website:
