Networking session with alumni and guests

Get an idea of the diversity of jobs for scientists in the private and public sectors! From 15.30 to 17.15, in the hall of the SwissTech Convention Center.

Job titles are not sufficient to fully understand the complexity of a specific role inside an organization. Which are the main tasks and responsibilities of our guests? Which skills are necessary to have – and to develop – to carry out their multiple missions? Discover our list of alumni and prepare your questions. Our guests will be in the hall to answer you queries. This session includes also a special guest: a recruiter from MIRAI Foods (n°28). Don’t miss this opportunity!
