Concept

A FREE event to discover your career opportunities!

  • Discover career-related steps and the everyday life of professionals with a life science background. Two symposia, three roundtables and a networking Forum will be perfect occasions for you to exchange insights with speakers, alumni, as well as professionals from many organizations and companies. You will be able to learn more about R&D positions, the private sector, creating your own business, the job market & what it does mean working for a large company or a small/medium sized business. Moderators will encourage questions!
  • Benefit of a CV check service. Remember to bring your CV along and to register at the workshops & CV registration desk upon your arrival, on a “first come, first served” basis.
  • Boost your career and learn in several workshops about dissecting a business plan, successfully communicating with prospective employers, presenting your best self (elevator pitch), getting ready for a job interview, and valorizing your competences in your professional online profile.

In summary: The main goal of the LSCD 2016 is to provide ideas, although potential job opportunities and/or training positions could be offered. Such information will help you better understand how to build a career after having obtained a degree in life science (Master, PhD) or how to make your career advance after a postdoctoral experience.
