Searching for and applying for jobs is a different process compared to faculty job applications. In fact, faculty application processes are the outlier compared to most other job applications. So how does the rest of the world work? This workshop is intended to help you understand how to prepare, search, and apply for jobs in the biotech and pharmaceutical industries, or whatever path you intend to follow.
