Prepare yourself for Life and Health Sciences Week
By UCL Careers, on 21 November 2014
It’s nearly time for Life and Health Sciences Week at UCL Careers. This is a chance to hear directly from professionals in the careers you’re aiming for. Find out more about the events happening here.
To get the most out of the week, do some research before attending the events. This will give you some background and enable you to ask better questions in the question and answer sessions. Here are some resources for you to use:
> Do you want to work in the pharmaceutical or biotech industry? This presentation by one of our Careers Consultants details the current state of the industry, the roles available, and how to get into them.
> If you are interested in working in health, inform yourself about the full range of careers in this sector. This presentation is about careers in health beyond medicine and routes into them. It includes public health, allied health professions in the NHS, and the commercial health industry.
> If you want to find out more about a career sector, use our digital library careerstagged.co.uk. Search by sector name, eg. ‘public health’ or ‘biotechnology’, for links to helpsheets and relevant websites. You can filter your results using the right hand menu – for example, choose ‘job site’ to see websites advertising jobs in this sector.
