The Jobs Out There
I am lecturing this week about the type of jobs out there, particularly for those in the biosciences with higher degrees. They are 1) listed, 2) hidden and 3) created. Listed jobs are obtained with stellar cover letters, resumes or CVs, and excellent interviews. Hidden are obtained usually through a network AND the excellent cover letters, resumes and interviews. Created jobs are obtained by those who are leaders and creative thinkers. If you have the leadership skills and the superb science - try for the latter. Your drive, passion, mentors and knowing the key players will take you there. Whether it is a CEO of a company or a new position at an institution, find the skills you need to get there and...get there.
