Here is the event schedule:

Parmar is an established business immigration attorney with 13-plus years of specialized experience working with scientists and researchers.

· Aug. 17: Sarah Pick will interview Derek Haseltine about how to improve your networking at scientific meetings. Haseltine is the director for Research Career Development and co-director for the Office of Postdoctoral Scholars at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.

· Aug. 24: Thomas Patrick, “Coach Tom,” will address how traditional job search methods can prolong searches and simple strategies to overcome “search inertia.”

The Virtual Job Summit will enable employers to recruit seasoned postgraduate life scientists from the top 15 percent of U.S. training institutions. Employers will be able to upload brochures, white papers, videos and webinar recordings to their virtual booths. Jobseekers will be able to browse among employers, download information and return during the two-day live event on October 5 and 6 to speak with employers via video chat.

“For employers, this will be the most efficient, cost-effective way to recruit top-level, work-experienced, postgraduate life scientists,” said President Nick Folger. “For jobseekers, it’s an opportunity to research and meet employers that are geographically distant.”
