Thursday, September 9, 9:00am – 10:30am
Scientific Writing: From an Idea to an Article
Monica Joshi, West Chester University of Pennsylvania
Presented via Zoom

We all intend to write up an idea or a completed project. However, it is not the intention but the writing direction that determines if a research idea will ever culminate in a written project. In this workshop, we will discuss ways in which we can merge our intentions with our actions and direct a worthwhile idea towards an article published in a scientific platform.

Friday, October 15, 12:00pm – 1:30pm
Resume and Interview Hints Helpful for Obtaining Positions at Any Level
Roy Helmy -Executive Director at Merck & Co.
Gino Salituro – Principle Scientist and Hiring Manger at Merck & Co.

Learn the secrets of locating positions. Understand the importance of how to read a job description so that you can submit an effective application.

This workshop takes you from preparing the resume to accepting the offer by reviewing 1) writing a resume, 2) preparing for a phone screen, 3) what to expect in a  typical candidate on-site interview experiences and questions, and 4) taking the time to review the offer and how to respond to the human resources and or hiring manager.

Building and Nurturing a Professional Network
 Stephen Scypinski, Ph.D., Vice President, Pharmaceutical Technology, Daiichi-Sankyo Inc.
Presented via Zoom

In today’s high-paced and Internet-centric environment, it is much easier to build and maintain a professional network than it was in the days of business card files and phone calls. Having an up to date network could be valuable in many situations. Who would you call if you were about to undergo a government inspection and needed an experienced opinion? Where do you turn if your position is being severed and you want to know who is hiring? Who would you contact regarding the reputation of a contractor or consultant you might want to business with? Learn how to build, expand, and nurture an up to date scientific professional network so essential for these and other circumstances.  Professional social media such as LinkedIn present a multitude of opportunities for members to network and communicate with colleagues and friends in their industry.

Tuesday, November 16, 11:45am – 1:15pm

The content of this presentation was published in chapter 8 of the book published by the ATD (Association of Talent Development) called Find Your Fit: A Practical Guide to Landing the Job You Love.
