Professional Development

Professional Development Workshops

Professional development opportunities, such as workshops, professional panels and career resources are offered by ECS at its biannual meetings. These events are free to all meeting registrants. Always check the current ECS Meeting page for the days, times, and locations of these professional opportunities.

Our previous workshops are listed below:

Essential Elements for Employment Success

Landing your next job requires selective and effective networking, developing and submitting specifically targeted résumés and cover letters, locating relevant job opportunities and preparing for and participating in the job interview. This workshop will provide up-to-date information and tips for employment success.

Résumé Review

Now that you’ve attended Part 1: Essential Elements for Employment Success, bring your résumé for a one-on-one session with an industry leader and expert on résumé development. You will walk away with a résumé that is sure to land you your next interview.

Panel of Professionals: Career Exploration in the Electrochemical and Solid State Science and Technology

Are you unsure of what career options are available in electrochemistry and solid state science and technology? Then this session is for you. Join us for a panel discussion where professionals from industry, academia (large research & small teaching), and government will discuss the unique opportunities and challenges of pursuing a career in their chosen field.

Attendees will have the opportunity to speak with each professional through small breakout groups following the panel. Students and early-career professionals are strongly encouraged to attend.


Upcoming Professional Development Workshops being offered will be listed under the next biannual meeting.

The Professional Development program continues to grow and more options will be announced as we approach our 232nd ECS Meeting in National Harbor in Fall 2017.
