“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” - George Bernard Shaw. In this second session of the two-part series, we continue to explore soft skills found to be lacking in employees, job candidates, and new hires according to a 2022 SPIE survey of top optics and photonics companies. Get ahead of the curve by taking a critical look at your own strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats in your career trajectory. Led by esteemed SPIE community members, Dr. Andrea Armani, Professor of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science at University of Southern California, and Dr. Goldie Goldstein, Principal Optical Research Scientist at Nikon Research Corporation of America. Attend Part A and B as a track or individually as your schedule allows.
