Share Our Careers in Pharma Video With University Students

Success in the pharma industry relies on talent from all backgrounds and input from many sectors. Here is an easy way to share industry opportunities and make an impact on the next generation.

During DCAT Week, a panel of pharma industry experts led a live broadcast webinar and Q&A, presented by the Science & Scholarship Committee, to attract students to the industry. The panelists explored a wide range of career topics, including how to get into the industry, the variety of roles available for scientists and non-scientists, and the rewards and challenges of working in pharma.

This panel discussion was recorded and is available on DCAT’s YouTube channel. Please share this great resource by forwarding this link to university students within your personal and professional network so they can benefit from this candid discussion.
