Links and Shoulders Graduate Student Mentoring Hour is an annual graduate student mentoring event held at APA Convention and sponsored by Division 45. Graduate students and Division 45 mentor volunteers gather to informally discuss issues of interest to students, with time-limited, speed mentoring program format. In a supportive and safe environment, students who are typically under-represented in psychology graduate programs visit tables where mentors discuss specific topics such as interviewing for clinical internship, strategies for publishing your article, success in academic and teaching careers, and navigating bias in graduate school. Links and Shoulders is an important mentoring program and a highlight of events for graduate students to attend. Division 45 invites graduate students to schedule Links and Shoulders on their calendar and come out to interact with mentors while enjoying refreshments. We hope to see you at next APA Convention!
