Through the “Crafting your Career” workshops and webinar series, we have tried to increase awareness of career options available to science students in India, as well as to provide requisite tools, knowledge, and information for navigating a career path in science. The CYC sessions touched upon aspects like building skills, networking, preparing CVs/Resumes, researching career options, role models, professionalism, work ethics etc. and also included talks by science professionals. They are targeted at students (Masters and PhD) and postdocs who are at the cusp of moulding their careers in science. We have received overwhelmingly positive feedback on this initiative. Till now, 7 offline workshops and 6 online webinars have been conducted.
