Lessons from a Life Science Recruiter

  • Broad Institute Auditorium (map)

For many job candidates, their first contact in the hiring process is with an internal (company-based) or external independently-contracted recruiter.  These individuals are responsible for identifying and acquiring talented researchers and initiating preliminary conversations prior to a formal interview.  As this process often begins with a very brief résumé review, many potentially skilled candidates are disqualified based on the poor organization or content of their résumé.  In this interactive panel, speakers will review common mistakes they find in résumés and critique attendee résumés to provide them with feedback and guidance on how to pass a preliminary screen when applying for industry positions.  Attendees will be encouraged to submit their resume for review during this panel.
