NWiS Coffee Hour: "Networking Basics"
Join the Network for Women in Science (NwiS) for its February coffee hour, co-sponsored by the Office of Postdoctoral and Career Services, for a hands-on crash course in networking to be held Monday, February 1, at 3 PM. The current biotech climate remains volatile with Pfizer and Merck recently announcing the elimination of hundreds of jobs as part of corporate realignment. You may wonder, "How do PhD's find an industry job?" It can be a matter of who you know. The discussion on "Networking Basics" led by Huong Huynh, president of the San Diego Association of Women in Science and program coordinator of the Burnham Institute Office of Postdoctoral Training, can help you gain the confidence and skills to make valuable connections. The event will be held in the Human Resources training room, 3377 North Torrey Pines Court, second floor, La Jolla, CA campus. Coffee and snacks will be provided. This event, like all NWiS events, is open to all of Scripps Research and the group welcomes male colleagues.
