STEMskiller: Skill Set Map for Mentors of Early Career Researchers
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has compelled many conferences to move online, necessitating the creation of online videos submitted to conference organizers in advance or "live" presenting by means of video conferencing software. Creating pre-recorded videos may take time and require the learning of new skills (e.g., video editing software), so plan well in advance and schedule enough time to edit your online presentation in order to put your best foot forward.
