We held a Corporate Spotlight Day on Saturday, April 29, 2017 from 8:30am – 1:30pm at UC San Diego’s Medical Education & Telemedicine (MET) building. Our program hosted this event in partnership with UC San Diego’s Postdoctoral and Visiting Scholar Affairs department, and the Postdoctoral Association’s Exposure to Industry program.
Forty-nine people attended and there were presenters from five local companies: Pfizer, Inc., QuintilesIMS, The Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research Foundation (GNF), Prometheus Laboratories, Inc., and Illumina. In the morning, corporate representatives shared their personal career journeys, corporate missions, working environment, job pathways and availability, along with fielding questions from the audience. After lunch, attendees had the opportunity to network in small groups with company representatives.
