Applications can be just as stressful as midterms and qualifying exams. We have to encapsulated ourselves and our experiences in far less space than it takes to really tell someone who we are. There’s the stress of choosing the right institution, job, program, and/or location.
Then, there are the internal questions that application processes could potentially bring to light:
- Am I qualified for this?
- Is this application a waste of time?
- Should I do more training, volunteering, etc and apply later?
- Is this position/degree program/fellowship right for me?
- And so many more.
For today’s #BLACKandSTEM chat, I want us to utilize our community as a whole to help us in our next move.
Ask your questions about choosing the best next step for you and how to prepare the application that will get you there.
