    ***Apologies for any cross-posting***

    Dear colleagues,

    The Careers Division is happy to offer a great opportunity to discuss your careers-related research with leading careers scholars who will mentor you regarding your topic choice, theoretical development, methodology, data analysis, and discuss the implications of your careers research.

    Similar to the popular Careers in the Rough workshop at the annual meeting, this virtual workshop will involve participants receiving feedback on their near final-form manuscript from an eminent scholar in the Careers Division during a 1-1.5 hour Skype session. Scholars serving as mentors for the April 2020 session are Michael Arthur, Ans De Vos, Kimberly Eddleston, Danna Greenberg, Wolfgang Mayrhofer and Daniel Spurk.

    Participants will be placed in conversation with a mentor based largely on the match between their paper and the scholars' interests/areas of expertise. Each participant will receive feedback about the positive aspects of their work, as well as be invited into dialogue about how their manuscript might be improved. Participants may also be placed in a triad, with one mentor and another participant. In such instances, participants are expected to provide a friendly review of each other's work so as to provide developmental feedback to one another during their Skype session.

    Who is this workshop for? This workshop is open to careers researchers at all levels. To provide developmental opportunities to those who are not able to attend the annual meeting, this workshop is open to those not attending the AoM conference in Vancouver.
