You know what it is you do, but how many other people understand your job? How good are you at getting the message across, and could you be communicating better?
Join us over the next four weeks as we delve into the Naturejobs archive every Wednesday and share with you some invaluable advice on how to get your message heard, whether that be using stories to make your science accessible, harnessing the power of social media, or tips on how to make sure you don’t wish the ground would swallow you up next time you have to do a presentation.
To start with this week, we thought we’d dig out our social media tips for scientists.
If you already use social media to communicate and engage, please do share your stories with the SpotOn team, who are collecting tales of social media success for the forthcoming SpotOn anniversary – more details here.
Please do also take part in our poll below, to let us know what you think of communicating your work.
Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to get all the Windback Wednesday tweets and updates in this series. If you miss any of them, don’t worry, as we’ll be rounding them up at the end of the month back here on the blog.
You can also find the round-ups of our recent Windback Wednesdays series, including how to make more cash, and CV and interview tips, by following the links above the comments section at the bottom of this post.
