#MedStudents, #Residents, #Fellows, and #Research Trainees - I recently had both a resident and fellow ask me how I got involved in research and published when I was a #trainee. I thought I would share my tips and advice in this thread. #MedTwitter #ACGME #MedStudentTwitter
1. Ask yourself👉what you want from this? To pursue research as career? To boost application for #residency #fellowship #employment? To get a recommendation letter? Regardless, aim for #publication (most value). Conference talks are cool, but publications stay on CV forever!
2. Basic science research=⬆️time+lab training vs clinical research. Study designs: RCTs, prospective, retrospective, case reports, review papers. Publishing case reports+review papers are most feasible endeavors during training! Best way to boost #publication numbers.

Good morning! Thanks a lot for your invaluable input yesterday about important steps for translation & interpreting graduates and beginners on how to become a successful #freelancer. Learning from seasoned colleagues, for example as a member in an organization, is a key factor.
Today, let's focus on our professionalism. Establishing a network, attending #webinars #seminars #conferences, investing time in learning how to use a CAT tool etc. are only parts of the mosaic. In order to find and keep clients we need to act like pros.
We all expect our clients to perceive us as professional service-providers at eye level. We are neither amateurs nor hobby-translators looking for some quick cash. Honesty towards a client is important, e.g. if you're not enough qualified or a suggested deadline can't be met.

Good morning! Yesterday we spoke about translation & interpreting graduates who often are not sufficiently prepared for a #freelance life. In your opinion, what steps are necessary to become a successful freelancer?
Thanks a lot for so many good ideas! I could add the ability to act like a professional (more about that later), staying curious & always keep learning, building up a pro network, keeping a healthy life/work balance. After all, we need to recharge to stay on top.
Did anybody mention joining a professional T&I organisation? Many have reduced membership fees for students and graduates. Apart from networking with colleagues, many offer CPD (continuing professional development) #webinars and #seminars which cover a number of different topics.

I am humbled and privilleged to note that my #Research paper; "Sources of #Unemployment in #Lesotho" is now available and can be accessed via the People's Republic of #China's National #Science and #Technology #Library - #NSTL. I give thanks 😎 Image
So far this year, I have successfully published three #Research articles in #Macroeconomics & #Finance, with another two in press. I am currently hammering away at a handful of working papers which will most certainly find a home in reputable #Journals, come 2021 🙏🏽🙂 Image
Im currently internalising the very insightful reviewer comments on my latest #Research paper titled; "Investigating Determinants of Commercial Bank Spreads in #Lesotho", from the good folks over at the globally reputable #International #Journal of #Finance & #Economics #IJFE 😊 ImageImage

1. Dialing up your energy a bit (+10%) when you are being social makes it easier to have a good time.
2. Being curious will help you be interested in other people.

After the wonderful @EANBoard #SoMe4Epis module on social media for public health professionals, on request:

[THREAD] Here’s my bag of resources and explanations for beginners, to get started on social media

Kicking off with an introduction to social media for scientists by @hollybik & @MiriamGoldste

All in the familiar academic format of a journal article:…

#scicomm @PLOSBiology
So why engage in social media as an epidemiologist or public health professional?

It helps to build trust in science!

One of my many pet-peeves at conferences... The ID Badge!

Nearly 50 per cent of the Badges are flipped - as a result you end up seeing a blank card. Why don't they print names on both sides? :)

Also, the font small, it is often impossible to read.
One more (I think I should create a thread/blog-post on this :))

Organizers (hotels) in India need to provide plenty of strong (black) coffee! The heavy conference food and boring talks/panels are recipes for sleep.

Good caffeine is available in plenty in U.S. conferences😉
A note for 'Panel Moderators' - Please just 'moderate'! And speak in moderation :) ... Ideally, as little as possible.

Your job is to ask good questions and get the panelists to speak. Not 'grandstand'. Interrupt, only if the panelist is going on for too long, or off-topic.

Des responsabilités aussi pour @pintofscienceFR. 👩‍🔬🍺 Ce sont 18 #conférences dans 6 #bars différents, sur diverses thématiques : des neurosciences aux sciences politiques, en passant par la physique et les sciences de la terre, il y en aura pour tous les goûts ! 😍
Notre #job : trouver des chercheurs et leurs doctorants, les briefer sur le festival, trouver des bars en capacité d’accueillir l’événement… et tout ça depuis octobre ! @pintofscienceFR
Nous avons été très bien accueillis au sein de l’équipe de bénévoles, certains sont expérimentés, pour d’autres c’est également leur première édition. Nous avons pu partager et échanger sur nos #expériences.😊🙃

Tips to #conferences offering #diversity tickets (THREAD)

1) Make it clear on your ticketing page that you offer diversity tickets.

2) Be specific about what you are offering e.g. is travel and accommodation incuded?

3) Be clear on how you decide on allocation of tickets.
4) Set expectations on when the applicant can expect a response and in what form.

5) Add your event to
6.1) Give applicants a reply ASAP - if it's a NO they may still want to buy a paid ticket during the early bird pricing window

6.2) Give applicants a reply ASAP - if it's a YES they will also need to book travel and accommodation - making them wait exposes them to higher costs
