Important Considerations for a Career in Biotech

When I was in graduate school, it seemed that almost no one aspired to work in industry or be part of a company. But times are changing. Now, when I go to conferences and talk to scientists in training, I am asked, ”how do I get a job in a company?” and “How did you get your job?”

This is not a question I can answer in five minutes or less, or in between visitors to my poster at ASM. So I’d like to write a couple articles on this topic beginning with one on the skills to develop and acquire to make yourself attractive to an industry hiring manager.

I am glad that industry and biotech R&D science is gaining in popularity among the new generation of scientists and they are actively asking the right questions to position themselves better for when the time comes to apply for jobs. In this first article, I’d like to tell you more about the skills and qualities that will make you an asset to a biotech company.
