In this webinar, we will talk about a very important survival skill in one’s career progression – ‘professional networking’. You will learn what professional networking is, what unique advantages it provides, what networks are made up of, what are the different types of networks, how you can study your own network and diagnose any common pitfalls, and whether networking is a natural skill or a cultivable one. We will also discuss some (baby) steps that you take to build, expand and actively manage your network.

The scientific ecosystem in India is ever-expanding, and more opportunities than ever are present today for those who wish to build their careers in science. This new series of webinars by IndiaBioscience will discuss several such career paths as well as provide the requisite knowledge, tools and techniques for science graduates to navigate and craft their career paths.

For our third session, join us to learn more about the science and art of professional networking, including strategies for building, maintaining, and expanding your networks. We will also be joined by Nusrat J M Sanghamitra, Founder & CEO, CyCa OncoSolutions, and Nelson Vadassery, Cofounder and Director of Engineering, Sea6 Energy, who will both discuss their individual entrepreneurial journeys.

This session is suitable for students who are currently pursuing or have recently completed a BSc, MSc, or a PhD in any life science field, as well as postdoctoral fellows and research scholars.
