From Academia to Industry: Mindset, Mechanics and Feedback

September 2, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

AWIS-SFInterested in making the transition from academia to industry? Join us for an interactive seminar with Dr. Pejman Azarmina, MD MSc, to learn tips and tricks on resume writing and interviewing.

The session starts with setting the vision for such transitions and managing personal expectations. Dr. Azarmina will then share his experience as a hiring manger during his Medical Affairs leadership role at Pfizer. You will gain practical insights on the mechanics of reframing and repurposing a resume for an industry role, and an understanding of the entry-level industry positions available to those with a scientific background. As a practical example, 5-7 resumes will be selected onsite for real-time open feedback that will be shared with all, allowing everyone to utilize the tips to customize their resumes for roles they might be pursuing in the future.
