Most importantly you will have plenty of chances to build your own personal network and discuss about career paths in your field of interest. You are free to do so spontaneously during the breaks at the booths directly, or in the setting of scheduled one-on-one meetings where company representatives can sit down with selected students for a short talk. This intimate environment allows for a relaxed interaction between both parties and a more in depth discussion of the candidates career prospects within the company. This dual approach guarantees a constant flow of participants through the company stands throughout the entire day and has been met with great enthusiasm and feedback in the past editions of the ZLSD (2014 Statistics).

So whether you are a student seeking your next challenge after the PhD or you are a company searching for exceptional talents to run your pipeline, manage your clinical trials or consult your clients - look no further. At the Zurich Life Science Day we guarantee you will be met with a pool of diverse and eager participants from all over the world who are ready to get their careers started!
