It is not long now until the 67th AAFS Annual Scientific Meeting in Orlando and we are excited! The 2015 YFSF Breakfast Session is perfect for those students getting ready to graduate and looking for careers in the field of forensic science. This year’s theme, “Getting There: Unique Professional Journeys in Forensic Science,” is centered on providing inspiration and professional tools to achieve success in the sometimes daunting and difficult job market. Prepare to be inspired by unique and engaging journeys in the forensic sciences shared by two keynote speakers, Christine Funk, General Counsel for the Washington, DC, Department of Forensic Sciences, and Ann Ross, a board-certified forensic anthropologist and professor at North Carolina State University.

In honor of YFSF’s 20th Anniversary, the keynote speakers will be joined by former YFSF Presidents and committee members in an open Q&A Session before breaking out into a one-on-one résumé review session. Attendees should bring multiple copies of their résumé for review. If you are an experienced forensic scientist, please consider serving as a résumé reviewer for the next generation of forensic professionals.
