The Naturejobs team hosted their first Naturejobs Career Expo in the USA on May 20th 2014. Their chosen spot: Boston, MA, a state known for its biotechnology hubs and world renowned institutions: Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
In between welcoming the delegates and hosting panels, I put on my reporting hat and found out what the organisers, delegates, speakers and exhibitors had to say about the event.
The conference hosts sessions with experts and careers advisers from industry and academia, providing practical advice on transferable skills, career paths and CV writing. “The Naturejobs Career Expo is an extension of what we offer online,” says Nils Moeller, global head of sales and advertising at Naturejobs. The Naturejobs Career Expo also offers a career exhibition, where employers showcase their companies and offer advice (and potential job opportunities) to visiting delegates. Listen to the podcast to find out more.
