What was your first job? The first thing you were paid to do? Your first position in your field? Kayla and Sally discuss first jobs and how to find your next first job. We argue that it’s silly that in academia your “first job” isn’t until you’re a tenure-track faculty, and that this undermines the hard work of students and trainees. Also on this episode, Kayla shares an Oh Shoot moment from the lab bench, and things get v. real in our Better Talk Next time segment. Finally, we learn about crosslinking gels in the Tech Talk, and on Stuff We Love, we love the Nikon Small World microscopy image competition and this awesome article by Sue Bird about the shameful lack of analytics in women’s sports.
