Career Webinar - Consultancy

Life Sciences Career Event


Are you curious what kind of jobs are possible after finishing your Master's degree? Join the Life Sciences Career Event webinars!

During the Online Life Sciences Career Events we invite GSLS alumni to talk about their job and the road towards it. Each event has a specific theme, either a field to work in (consultancy, non-profits, pharmaceutical industry), or a topic to help you kickstart your career (finding a job as an international, how to prepare a job interview). These events are facilitated by a GSLS career officer, and you are invited to actively ask questions and/or participate in discussions. Please make sure to register for the events for them to count for the Broadening Life Sciences module. 

Topic: consultancy

Do you like tackling complex issues? Then consultancy might be a good profession for you! Working project-based and often in various organizations as well, consultancy will be a life-long learning experience. We discuss this with two consultants from different organizations.
