CSC Professional Development Track: Career Discussion Panel and Coffee Mixer

Sunday, June 5, 2016
WTCC, Suite 303

Listen to and interact with four panelists working in the chemical sciences as they discuss their career paths and answer your questions.

Guest speaker Zhongxin Zhou (Gilead) will kick off the session with his talk "Be Prepared to Showcase Yourself in an Interview." Each panelist will then speak briefly about their background, work experiences and the decisions that led them to their current positions. This will be followed by a Q&A session between panelists and attendees about careers in chemistry. Finally, coffee will be served and attendees invited to engage with the panelists in less formal one-on-one discussions.
