SANTA CRUZ, Calif., Sept. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 400 graduate level scientists, all holding degrees from Medical/Graduate Schools ranked among the top 15%, have registered to participate in the upcoming Virtual Job Summit. At the Summit, they will have the opportunity to meet top U.S. and international employers like MedImmune, St. Jude, City of Hope, and Domain Therapeutics. They will also network online and attend talks on careers and job search.
Bio Careers (www.biocareers.com), the leading online career service for postgraduate life scientists, is holding the world's first Virtual Job Summit for life science Master's and PhD graduates October 5-6. The online summit will enable employers to meet, converse with and interview alumni and degree candidates from 39 of the top 50 U.S. training institutions—without leaving their office.
"We are excited about the event because it will allow employers to participate in a remarkable job fair without the time or expense of traveling to a physical location," President Nick Folger said. "Each employer will receive their own 'virtual booth,' which they can fill with a variety of information, such as white papers, brochures and videos."
"Employers will have two looks at candidates—during event 'office hours' and in follow-up interviews—to assess their skills and culture fit before investing in bringing them in for interviews," Folger said.
Here is a timeline for the event:
- Through October 4th, job seekers will navigate through the exhibit hall, download materials and determine which employers to visit.
- On October 5 and 6, employers will video chat with interested job seekers at their booth.
- Later in October, employers will conduct video interviews and receive a report of everyone who visited their booth.
Registration for the Virtual Job Summit is currently open. For more information, call (877) 862-4656, Ext. 102 or email email@example.com.
