You are interested in positions outside of academia within pharmaceutical companies (e.g. Biopharma), but you don’t know which position might fit your skills and interest?
In this workshop, we will start with some brief information about different jobs in industry. We will then address topics like distinguishing entry level and advanced level positions or finding out whether a certain position involves practical lab work, leading employees, and so on. Together we will interpret job postings in small groups. You will have the opportunity to also discuss postings you are interested in.
