Event Date(s): Friday, February 19, 2021 - 12:00pm to 01:30pm PST
Outreach and recruitment continue to be a top priority for most biotech training programs. Helping students understand what biotechnology is and see their own potential to pursue career opportunities in the field continues to be a challenge. To this end, the Biotechnology Program at City College of San Francisco (CCSF) has begun to rely more heavily on our alumni network for outreach, recruitment and retention. CCSF instructor, Karen Leung, will discuss some of the strategies the CCSF Biotech program has used to help students connect with alumni including collecting student testimonials, alumni speed networking and informational interviews.
