|Today’s graduate students have a valuable set of both technical and creative skills suited for many technological industries. There are many avenues in this area for graduate students to consider and pursue when entering the work force and start-up companies can be the ideal setting. However, marketing one’s self to companies, developing networking skills, and choosing the right company with which to pursue a career pose challenges.
What are the pros/and cons of working in a startup? What are the right strategies to find, network, and land a job at a company?
The Center for Sustainable Materials Chemistry (CSMC) will host a webinar titled: “Postgraduate Career Strategies: Start-up” as part of the ongoing series of Innovation Webinars. Panelists from start-up companies will discuss the current landscape of a start-up and the transition from working in an academic lab setting to working in a start-up company. Panelists will be available to answer questions regarding current expectations for recent graduates, points to consider when searching for jobs as well as alternative non-research opportunities within a start-up company.
Join our panelists, Dr. Bastiaan Driehuys (Duke University), Dr. Sean Muir (Amorphyx) and Dr. Calden Carroll (SupraSensor) as they discuss this important topic in a round table discussion.
