Webinar: Exploring Careers in the Time of Coronavirus
Event Date(s): Friday, April 17, 2020 - 02:00pm to 03:30pm EDT
This informal webinar will address two main topics:
What are biotech companies doing to combat COVID-19?
How can we have students explore biotech career opportunities in these crazy times?
This session will address an online website and database that students can use to explore biotech careers. The main tool we will use is Biotech-Careers.org, a career site and biotech company database developed by Digital World Biology, with funding from the National Science Foundation's Advanced Technology Education (ATE) program (DUE 1764225).
Dr. Sandra Porter, InnovATEBIO, Digital World Biology, will provide an overview of the resources at Biotech-Careers.org.
Dr. Karen Leung, City College of San Francisco, will share an assignment that her students use with Biotech-Careers.org
Dr. Todd Smith, InnovATEBIO, Digital World Biology, will demonstrate how students can use the tools at Biotech-Careers.org to explore the biotech company database and see how biotech companies are working to combat COVID-19.
Depending on time, we may also discuss the changes in demand that we are seeing around the country, depending on whether companies need more technicians to conduct COVID-19 diagnostic tests or are laying people off, due to state shut down orders and changes in demand.
