Chief Science Officer: Pathways to Leadership, Careers in Life Science Learn More

Chief Science Officer: Pathways to Leadership, Careers in Life Science is designed for students, postdocs, and other technical professionals making the transition to business and industry and seeking preparation for leadership and management positions. It will show you the skills that are required, guide you in addressing your current skill levels, and provide the training to address your weaknesses to become not only competitive in landing an industry job, but successful in that job as well.

One of the most effective and unique features of this program is how the instructors relate "business" concepts to activities and behaviors commonly experienced by academic scientists. This approach helps students gain a deeper understanding of how their own experiences can strengthen their competitiveness for industry positions. The course also provides a self-assessment tool that introduces students to each of the 24 competencies, has them rank their own skill levels, and helps them develop "experience statements" from their own careers that support these rankings. A detailed report generated by the assessment tool then maps the student's capabilities to those that are critical to different kinds of jobs in different industries. The instructors will then show how to use this information to develop powerful targeted resumes and to prepare for effective interviews.
