“Inspire” Seminar Series
While the prospect of a career in academia attracts several people, many others look at other avenues for their post-graduation careers. However, the reality of the biomedical industry and its job opportunities often remain an unknown for too many graduate students. The “Inspire” Seminar Series is a unique opportunity to explore the reality of the biomedical industry from people directly involved in it. Each talk includes a guest speaker, and it is specifically designed to encourage active discussion between them and the audience. This gives the opportunity for participating students to access relevant insights and personal experiences directly from professionals in the biomedical industry. At the same time, since many of the guests were or still are also involved in academia, the “Inspire” seminar series can help students interested in pursuing an academic career as well. So if you think that the path ahead of you is still not clear, or if you are just curious about what is out there for you, come to EnventureSA’s “Inspire” Seminar Series and ask the experts!
