The path to mastery of the field of behavior analysis is a long and treacherous journey. On the road there are many milestones such as graduating with a master's degree, passing the BACB exam, learning specialty skills, graduating with a doctorate degree, and countless others. The current panel aims to open a discussion around the options currently available to a behavior analyst following their graduation that will ensure they are ready for the long road ahead. The panel participants will share valuable tips and tricks that will allow behavior analysts, at any milestone, to remain involved in "academia-like" behavior and to plan for their professional journey. Participants will be encouraged to create individual goals related to their impending careers, build strong support networks, stay current in the literature; we will provide an alternative outline on how to become (and remain) true masters of their science.
