SSP’s Career Development Committee launched a podcast series in October for early career publishing professionals. Co-hosted by Meredith Adinolfi (Cell Press) and Sara Grimme (Digital Science), the podcast series offers advice and discussion on how early career publishing professionals can add to their skill sets, develop networks, and take advantage of opportunities. The series presents interviews and insights from experienced professionals on how to navigate one’s career in a diverse and ever-changing landscape of scholarly communications.
The second podcast episode covers the topic of career progression, and focuses specifically on the question ‘where do I go next?’. The episode includes two interviews with Laura Ricci (Consultant at Clarke & Esposito) and Ian Mulvany (Head of Transformation, Product Innovation at Sage), who tell fascinating personal stories about moving jobs and also offer invaluable advice on navigating the broad publishing industry.
