Do you work in the life sciences and want to make a difference in a young person’s life? MassBioEd is looking for volunteers for two exciting opportunities!
Speed Networking Event Next Week
Would you be willing to participate in a speed-networking event and share your academic/career experiences and what it is like to work in a corporate setting? MassBioEd Foundation is recruiting 15 scientists for a Speed Networking Event to help Suffolk University junior and seniors explore life sciences career paths on Wednesday November 13th from 5:30 to 7:30pm.
Scientists will be seated at a table and will chat with 5-8 Suffolk University students for 10 minutes at a time as the student groups rotate through the tables. No meeting preparation is required, we just ask that you submit your bio to MassBioEd in advance, so we can share it with the students.
