Define "Early Career"
Berkeley Lab IDEA defines "early career" as someone with 0-10 years of professional experience in a particular field, regardless of the level of experience they may have cultivated in other/previous fields. This definition is age-agnostic and inclusive of career-switchers, recent graduates from different types of training programs, and individuals acquiring experience after receiving a terminal degree.
