Kudos To The Hopkins Professional Development Office

We’re always running into one of the Welch Library’s favorite boosters, Donna Vogel, Director of the Professional Development Office. We see Donna at numerous information tables (orientations, new faculty events) around campus. The PDO is always sending “traffic” our way, and they help us promote classes and workshops that we sponsor. So, we wanted to return the favor and give them some much-deserved credit.

That’s Donna (in white) doing what I always see her doing, advising and assisting. If you haven’t checked into what the PDO can potentially do for you, then time, my friends, is “a-wasting”. You may have been busy during the holiday season and missed the latest announcement from their office:Announcing! Internship Opportunities for Postdocs

Internship in the PDO

The internship is an opportunity to get acquainted with the work of a career development office at the graduate and postdoctoral level. Two project options are available: 

Project One: Career Speaker/Panel Series or Project Two: Professional Skills Workshop. The PDO Director and the intern will decide jointly which project will be the focus of the internship. Ideally one half-day/week for 3 months, possibly one full day/week for 6 weeks.

For details and to apply see [Internship with the PDO.pdf]
