#MillerTwitterTakeover Networking: Since networking is impt. to jobs & success after you have one, & it relates to another question I'll answer, I guess I should talk about it. Disclaimer: I am as introverted as they come & hate networking, esp. with people I don't know.WCM 1/n
My early career poster strategy was to stand next to it & if someone came up to look at it, I'd walk away like it wasn't mine & start looking at another poster. Don't do that. 😄 But you can learn to network & manage those introverted tendencies, if you have them. 2/n
1) Set reasonable expectations. How many conversations can you manage in a day at a conference? Pick a #, say 3-4, & make that your goal.
2) Choose any bigshots you want to meet ahead of time. Email them, or better yet, have your mentor email them & ask if to meet at a break.3/n

#MillerTwitterTakeover What are your 3 main pieces of advice for early faculty years (first 1-2 years)? What are some of the DOs and DONTs you swear by? #ECR
1) Find out your uni's expectations annual & promotion-grants, papers, teaching, independence from prev. mentors. WCM 1/n
Independence from previous mentors can be tricky, esp for those that work with big cohort data, like ARIC. So, being clear what is expected is key. It's a must to know how papers are valued: #, quality, impact factor, citations. Also, for grants, will a K be valued? 2/n
2) Find a mentor TEAM. One person will not be enough. You want substantive & professional development mentors. You may want people that look like you & that's a good thing, but sometimes for people of color, those folks aren't in your field. Meet with them & listen to them. 3/n
