The IRIS Early Career Investigators (ECI) Working Group invites all 
those interested, particularly late-stage graduate students through 
postdoctoral scholars, to attend a symposium on Sunday, June 8 in 
Sunriver, Oregon, the morning before the start of the 2014 IRIS 
Consortium Workshop. 

Titled *"Jumping on the Employment Express -- How to be Part of the 
Geosciences Employment Boom"*, the symposium will be led by Dr. 
Christopher Keane (Director of Communications and Technology, American 
Geosciences Institute). He will lead exercises to show how attendees can 
identify their interests and skills within the realm of 
geoscience-related career opportunities, frame their expertise to a job 
search outside of academia, and develop a practical outlook regarding 
employment opportunities and location constraints.

The IRIS ECI community is uniquely positioned within the geosciences to 
have a wide range of employment opportunities, given its strong science 
and math skills that are highly sought after and in short supply. Please 
join us to discover how talented you are with your geoscience degree, 
and how to present your skill set in the best way possible to maximize 
your employment opportunities!

This free symposium is scheduled for 8:30-11:30 AM. Attendees should 
plan to arrive Saturday night. A complete agenda for the symposium will 
be updated here soon:

If you plan to attend, please register by contacting Danielle Sumy 
(danielle.sumy at gmail.com) and Andy Frassetto (andyf at iris.edu) via email. 
The ECI Working Group also plans to hold a SIG session during the main 
workshop.*The deadline for general scholarship applications for the IRIS 
workshop is this Friday: 

We hope to see you in Oregon!
