ASBMR Student Cohort July Program: "Navigating Career Paths - Industry" - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
How do we find career resources for non-conventional STEM industry careers? every career resource center I've been to has very obvious "options," such as if your degree is in Genetics, look for a career in "genetic counseling." they all seem like really bad advice and they never cover options that aren't obvious like government, nonprofit, consulting, etc.
Do you have the opportunity to mentor/teach young scientists in industry? If so, how does it differ from doing so in academia?
the problem I'm having is that I don't know who to make personal connections with though. and I don't know what the positions are that are available since there aren't resources that aggregate that info it seems.
https://www.biospace.com/ may be a useful website to explore for alternative industry career resources
How do you build a track record/reputation in industry when the bulk of your research cannot be fully disclosed or published due to confidentiality?
What kind of extracurricular activities do employers find valuable in future employees? Are entrepreneur programs/activities of interest?
I'm not looking to be recruited though, I'm looking to determine what my options for career paths are and how I can prepare for certain ones I'd be interested in. linked in is a good choice to find a job, it doesn't seem to be great at learning more about options available to me.
that's not my question. I don't want to learn about a specific career. I'm looking for some kind of aggregated resource that has information about a bunch of career options.
Do companies in industry have exhibitor booths at conferences where they recruit potential employees? Also do biotech companies have reimbursement programs if an employee wants to pursue an MBA?
If you don’t check off all the desirables on the job description, how open is industry to training you up? Similarly, can you still be trained in techniques that interest you when you work in industry, or only if it related to the project/ pipeline you’re working on?
is there some type of aggregated resource on a wide variety of careers in industry? something that does not involve having individuals from single jobs approaching me to recruit me.
Kind of related to Bethan’s question; if you have a background in basic biology, is it difficult to get involved with clinical research in industry?
Is there currently a need for PhDs in biomedical sciences? In the past some of my colleagues were worried about being overqualified when going into industry.
How do/ did you find adjusting to a change in project if a pipeline is dropped (e.g., due to toxicity etc.)? How do you park your curiosity as a scientist?
