Cold Emails and Hot Coffee: The ACE (Active Career Exploration) Plan

In this PDF, Albert Chen, PhD, and other PhDs and post-docs from the University of Michigan discuss ways to engage in active career exploration by engaging in self-assessment, emailing interesting people and setting up informational interviews with them, and factoring the information you gather into your next steps. This is a thorough guide with helpful email templates, sample questions to ask in your conversations, and ideas for adding value when you reach out (as opposed to subtracting it!).
