As Careers Information Manager it’s not that often that I get really excited about a new careers resource, but today is definitely one of those rare days!
The Biopharma Skills Consortium have produced some fantastic online material, with information about the industry, placements, job hunting as well as applications, CVs and interviews.
I would suggested starting with the section about the structure and roles within the industry to get a solid idea of what are where you might like to apply. Here you can:
- Understand the scope and shape of the biopharma industry.
- Be aware of the wide variety of roles available within the sector.
- Decide which part of the industry you plan to work in.
- Convince host companies and future employers that you understand where their organisation fits in the sector.
