What to do next? is a question many young, aspiring pharmaceutical scientists ask themselves as they progress in their education or early on in their careers. This webinar aims to inspire participants that are considering a career in industry by showcasing two pharmaceutical researchers working in the pharmaceutical industry. The speakers will reveal what motivated their career choices, provide their best tips for securing a position in industry, and what opportunities they see in the future.

This event aligns with FIP Development Goals 2 and 9.

Learning Objectives:

- Participants will be able to compare a career in two different pharmaceutical companies.
