From all the Naturejobs team, a big thank you to everyone who attended the Naturejobs Career Expo in London last Friday. We hope you all managed to get a lot out of the day from the conversations you had with exhibitors and fellow Expo goers, the conference, the CV checking service and everything else that was on offer on the day. For some tips on how to follow up on any conversations you had, take a look at our post on what to do after the career fair.
I’d also like to extend a special thank you to all the fantastic speakers who took part in the conference. Each panel had something different to offer: from a career in the biomedical science industry to CV skills, from the discussions on the breadth of academic opportunities to the challenges (and good parts!) of working in industry, and more. There were plenty of career insights which I hope gave you something to think about when you went home.
Special thanks also go to our event sponsors, FAPESP and Contact Singapore.
If you didn’t make it on the day, or were unable to catch a talk, stay tuned to the blog – we’ll be posting reports from the conference sessions and workshops. You can also have a look through the comments and conversations on Twitter with the hashtag #NJCE14.
If you were able to make it, we would appreciate your feedback and input. After all, we put this event on for you and we want to make it as useful to you as possible. We would love to hear your feedback from the event, whether it’s what you thought of the conference sessions and speakers, the CV checking service, the treasure hunt, the exhibitors, or anything else. Please leave your feedback in the comments section below or send us a message via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter or Facebook.
Fact of the day: the sounds of waves lapping onto the beach are relaxing because they occur at the same frequency as our breathing rate when we sleep. Thanks, Dr Thomas Weller!
