Add to Calendar 10/08/2019 06:00 PM 10/08/2019 8:30 PM America/New_York Career Possibilities: Research & Development - Biotech, Pharma, Medical In the world of business, careers are no longer linear or predictable. What was once a clearly sign-posted path as you progressed through milestones, a career road map is now circuitous presenting new challenges and opportunities at every bend. Life-long careers in one sector or one company are becoming a rarity as new technologies and shifting social norms disrupt traditional careers. Both employers and employees are seeking more diversity of experience, lifestyle flexibility and alternative paths. This panel is designed to help you think about your career path and the different options that are open to you. The panel will have an informational interview type feel with panelists sharing their career paths, a look at what their job entails, transferrable skills for those looking to make a change, tips for uncovering opportunities, advice for others, and how to make brave leaps. Then you will get some small group time with the panelists during a few speed networking rounds. The panel portion will be moderated by Jo Viney, Co-Founder, President and CSO at Pandion Therapeutics. Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, 415 Main Street, Monadnock Room, Cambridge, MA 02142

Negotiation is part of our everyday lives and shows up everywhere. In business, it’s a critical component to success. While negotiation strategies seem simple, it’s not unusual for people to get caught up in the emotion of the moment and lose sight of the plan. bluebird bio, 60 Binney Street, 10th Floor, Aviary Room, Cambridge, MA 02142
