Past Career Chats

Hear how life scientists just like you secured their positions.

In the sub-pages in the navigation menu you can find the announcement pages for career chats held by the YSN since 2011, when the first one was hosted. These events are a speaker series that aim to invite life-scientists from a variety of disciplines and professions to introduce the company they work for and outline career possibilities within their company. These talks aim to provide a more informal and informative example of how a life scientist has developed their career path by providing a bit about their career-related steps and their current everyday life within their position. The informative presentation is opened to questions from the audience and is followed by an apero where audience members can more freely interact with the invited speaker(s) in a more relaxed atmosphere.
