Tips for Keeping Up

It's good to keep up with what's going on in your field, even if you've recently found yourself without a position. Bitesize Bio's Ellen Moran offers four tips for keeping up. First, she says to stay in contact with your former coworkers and boss, even stopping by to say hello, and then she notes that keeping up with people on social networks can be a boon. Additionally, Moran suggests setting up email alerts based on keywords so that you stay on top of the latest researcher. Lastly, she says to take advantage of the time you have. "Being out of work isn't exactly ideal, but it can be a good opportunity to finally write that paper you have been putting on the back burner. It could also be an ideal time to write some reviews, or, if you wish to get back into research, to write some research grants," she adds.
