Career Opportunities in Biotechnology and Drug Development

This is a great book from my Reading List that has received many positive ratings on Amazon. The summer is a great time to catch up on reading and I think you'll find this to be helpful if you're considering a career in the pharmaceutical or biotechnology industries. It's also been reviewed by Chemical & Engineering News as well as the American Chemical Society Careers Blog.

Career Opportunities in Biotechnology and Drug Development

Here's a snippet from Amazon:
Each chapter includes valuable sections on preparing yourself for a prospective career: educational requirements and personality characteristics needed; recommendations of books, magazines, and Web site resources; and issues to consider regarding salary and compensation. The book also includes interviewing and job searching tips, as well as suggestions on writing a resume specifically for industry.

The author (Toby Freedman, PhD) was trained as a scientist and transitioned into business as a writer, recruiter, and entrepreneur. She now runs a life-science recruiting firm, Synapsis Search. Toby received a Ph.D. in molecular biology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She was an NIH Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University and at the University of Texas at Austin.
