“Swimming Downstream:  Networking, Interview and Resume Skills that will Impact Your Career”

Some of the most important factors influencing the level of your career success will be outside of your day-to-day job performance.  Your ability to develop AND leverage a strong network of professionals, mentors and strategic advocates, your ability to deliver in new, behavioral interviews which are less specific and harder to rehearse for, and your ability to effectively market how you are different in a punchy, effective way in your resume will be three of these key factors.

Come learn best practices on how to network, interview and market your resume from a U of R grad who has interviewed over 10,000 life science professionals and worked behind the scenes helping some of the top life science companies think about and evaluate key talent across every area of drug development.

“Understanding the Landscape of Career Options in Biotech & Pharmaceutical Companies”
