Opportunity in Chaos

Tuesday, May 24, 2022, at 2 pm (Eastern US time)

ACerS President’s Council of Student Advisors (PCSA) is hosting the May webinar, Opportunity in Chaos in the ACerS Professional Skills and Personal Development Webinar Series.

From a disadvantaged and at times hostile environment where personal and professional challenges shackles your growth and opportunities, it’s time to step out of your comfort zone. The cross-cultural experience motivates you to involve, innovate, and inspire yourself and the future generations.


This webinar will focus on strategies for navigating career paths amidst the cross-cultural experiences, finding the right opportunities and negotiation skills to get the best out of your academic research and coursework. The discussion will be in a story telling form with important conclusions which can be adopted to enhance student experience and leadership skills for future professional careers.


This webinar will help young professionals to:

  • Learn the dynamics of transitioning from academia to industry
  • Strategies to explore cross-disciplinary job-roles
  • Leverage in-lab learning towards a successful career in industry/academia or in-between
