Topic Summary

Join us in the second 2018 NAPB webinar focusing on soft skills for plant breeders.  This talk will focus on transition to agricultural industry from an academic setting. This is a vital step for many plant breeders, as industry provides a career outlet for a high percentage of students, post-docs, and academic professionals.  For career academics, interacting with industry professionals is also an essential skill, as industry helps to advance the field of plant breeding in innovative ways and provide employment opportunities for graduate students.
