Qualified regulatory professionals are highly sought after by biotech companies today. Now is a great time to find your dream job! Join us for an interactive question and answer session to obtain expert advice on job search strategies and ways to optimize your LinkedIn profile. Resume writing often gets a lot of attention from job seekers when, in fact, your public LinkedIn profile is your best networking tool. 

Whether you are entering the regulatory profession for the first time or looking to change your career focus and gain experience in another aspect of regulatory affairs, you will be able to ask your questions and learn new job seeking strategies such as how to work with recruiters. 

 Learning Objectives for attendees include:

  1. Learn how to optimize your LinkedIn profile for improved networking.
  2. Learn what recruiters are looking for when placing candidates.
  3. Optimize your job search approach to find the best fit for you. 

This event is brought to you by the RAPS San Francisco Bay Area Chapter to encourage knowledge sharing and community development. RAC holders may claim 1.0 RAC recertification credit.
