Inside the Hiring Manager’s Mind

While many postdocs are interested in career opportunities in the biotech and pharmaceutical industry, it remains very challenging to navigate the application process and understand what it actually takes to obtain an industry position.

In the 3rd Annual Joint Career Development Forum, we have invited HR specialists and hiring managers who have hired candidates at various career stages from local life science industry to form an interactive panel, sharing with the audience their perspectives of the industry hiring process and discussing the qualifications, experience and many other qualities of the successful candidates.
