April 7 - Brad Wilson, Roche

Brad Wilson, a Purdue alumnus and current Roche employee, came to talk about his experiences in industry.  His key recommendations are to be outspoken, communicate, and show initiative.  He also emphasized the importance of networking, both at your place of employment and with past acquaintances on LinkedIn.  On resumes, Brad recommended being specific and descriptive without overstating.  For interviews, he highlighted answering the questions directly, avoid speaking about your personal life, and start out with a good handshake!

 

There is one remaining meeting this semester!  The cookout is Thursday, April 21st at 6:30 pm at the picnic tables outside the Biochemistry Building.
