Good advice on good work

Thursday, October 30, 2014

“Good work speaks for itself,” said Bill Tenn, senior research associate at INVISTA. This was just some of the advice Tenn shared with a couple dozen students and postdoctoral as­sociates at CEBC’s Fall 2014 Industry Advisory Board meet­ing. The hour-long mentoring session touched on questions about employers, job satisfaction, research trends and em­ployment opportunities. Tenn emphasized how important it is to classify yourself as a problem-solver and team-builder. He also advised students to “be flexible, seeking value any­where—even in other countries.”
