On June 12 we had a live IUGA Webinar: Making the Transition From Trainee to Early Career Professional. Hosted by Debjyoti Karmakar with special guests Wenche Klerkx from the Netherlands and Gans Thiagamoorthy from the UK, the webinar focused on helping trainees make the transition to independent consultants by focusing on strategies to cope with the fear of working independently and unique challenges that a consultant faces (as compared to being a trainee).
