PART 1 (5:00 pm - 6:00 pm)
What do you consider when you're making a career transition? Attend this session to hear stories about graduate students and postdocs who successfully jumpstarted (or crawled) into new industry roles, and strategies and timelines for how they did it.
Developed by UMass Boston, "our #MicroSim job simulationsare designedto take the student as little as 1-2 hours. We develop #MicroSims in collaboration with employers/scientists working in these roles."
The Program in Graduate Education (PGE) at Harvard Medical School (HMS) is pleased to host this session showcasing the growing array of post-docs available for life sciences trainees looking for training in the areas of the public, non-profit and private sectors. These post-docs prepare life scientists trainees for careers including bioethics, science policy, science communication, mass media, clinical affairs and medical affairs.
This session will feature professionals who are hiring managers, mentors or past participants in these "non-...
The City of Boston Urban Mechanics summer fellowship is a highly-selective, eight-week program. Fellows work as a team, creating and putting in place thoughtful new policies to benefit Boston. Fellows also take part in many professional development sessions to get a broad view of careers...
