As a graduate student, I thought being a postdoc was a rather bad deal. On top of the bad pay, no retirement benefits, and the countless hours in the lab, postdocs must sometimes rely on their antiquated, anchored-in-academia mentors for career advice.

When I arrived at the NIH, I learned that the postdocs and other trainees in the intramural research program had an office that was directly devoted to their training experiences: the NIH Office of Intramural Training & Education (OITE).
