      About this Event
      Please join us in welcoming author Daniel Goodman, Director of Advanced Technology at ASM-NEXX and of the Fannie and John Hertz Foundation, to the MIT Press Bookstore on Saturday, January 25. He will be discussing his new book, Find Your Path , with some of his contributors. Names will be soon announced.

      About the Book

      Scientists offer personal accounts of the challenges, struggles, successes, U-turns, and satisfactions encountered in their careers in industry, academia, and government.

      This insightful book offers essential life and career lessons for newly minted STEM graduates and those seeking a career change. Thirty-six leading scientists and engineers (including two Nobel Prize winners) describe the challenges, struggles, successes, satisfactions, and U-turns encountered as they established their careers. Readers learn that there are professional possibilities beyond academia, as contributors describe the paths that took them into private industry and government as well as to college and university campuses. They discuss their varying preferences for solitary research or collaborative teamwork; their attempts to achieve work-life balance; and unplanned changes in direction that resulted in a more satisfying career. Women describe confronting overt sexism and institutional gender bias; scientists of color describe the experience of being outsiders in their field.

      Daniel Goodman is Director of Advanced Technology at ASM-NEXX, a Massachusetts-based company that produces semiconductor capital equipment, and a director of the Fannie and John Hertz Foundation, which provides graduate fellowships in applied science.
