WIB-National MAPS Webinar: Pathways from Academia to a Career in Industry

August 26 @ 12:00 pm1:00 pm

With a growing focus on the translation of research for collective benefit, there is increasing recognition of the way industry and academia are intertwined. Other than taking the bench research to the bedside, a career in industry also serves to be a place where many may be better suited. However, the skillsets of most academics are often not aligned with the needs of the industry. Not sure of the path that lies ahead? Not sure of the best fit or ways to align the needs of a career in industry? This webinar aims to address this gap. Through this program, we hope to give STEM academics insights into the basic differences and similarities between academia and industry, and the best way to prepare themselves for a successful career in industry.
