Life takes time – Part 1: Hiring Seasons

By Lauren Celano, CEO, Propel Careers

Lauren Celano, CEO, Propel Careers wrote this blog for Bio Careers as part of her monthly contributions. To learn more about Bio Careers, see link: http://biocareers.com/bio-careers-blog?title=&tid=All&uid=Lauren+Celano

Just like the ocean waves, hiring is a process with peaks (fall and spring) and troughs (summer and winter). Certainly some hiring occurs during the troughs, but much less than the peaks. During the slower periods, I advise people to actively set aside time to self-reflect. Consider what you want, need, and prefer in your next role, team, and company so that you are focused and prepared to seize the right opportunity once hiring picks up.

Every summer, I talk with numerous people who all ask (in a worried tone), why am I not finding roles or being asked to interview? Many of these people have incredible backgrounds and experience relevant to a variety of roles. My response: the "summer slowdown." Simply put, hiring managers, HR people and others at a company are on vacation. Therefore interviews are difficult to schedule and feedback is hard to obtain in a timely manner to move the hiring process along.

The "summer slowdown" presents a unique opportunity for candidates considering a career or company change. Candidates should use this time to engage in informational interviews since the people they are looking to connect with may also have more time for coffee, lunch, or a phone call. During these conversations, candidates can learn about companies and roles as well as skillsets needed to excel in a new opportunity. This information will help develop a career search plan and also provide much needed information to spruce up (or totally revise) a resume.

This time is the perfect opportunity to develop and build out a professional and detailed LinkedIn profile (which can be searched by HR and hiring managers). Add a summary section, details about work experience, educational background, professional associations and other information (i.e. papers and publications). Developing a full profile usually takes a few iterations so the time allows you to gather feedback from your contacts and revise as needed.

Candidates should also cultivate their network to connect/re-connect with industry and career relevant individuals i.e. college and grad school classmates, former co-workers, and personal connections from groups like running clubs or charities. Use the slowdown for coffee, lunch, picnics, or calls. Learn about what your contacts are up to. Maybe you can be helpful to them as well.

Develop a "target company" list with categories such as "relevant" i.e. companies related to your background, "interested in" i.e. companies that you want to learn more about, and "work for" i.e. companies that you want to work for. Usually the "relevant list" is much larger (i.e. 50 companies) than the "work for" list (i.e. 5 companies). This process can take weeks or months, so starting when you have time to devote to it is very worthwhile.

Preparing yourself during the downtimes will allow you to make the most of the hiring surges. Hiring can happen quickly, within 3-4 weeks from post of job to offer given, so you want to make sure you can hit the ground running when the right opportunity comes your way.

Building your “soft skills” By Lauren Celano, CEO, Propel Careers

Lauren Celano, CEO, Propel Careers wrote this blog for Bio Careers as part of her monthly contributions. To learn more about Lauren's Blogs for Bio Careers, see link: http://biocareers.com/blog/lauren-celano

I often advise PhD students on career planning and the many options available to them in and out of academia. When I ask about specific skills, many focus only on their research/technical skills, i.e. "hard skills" such as genetics, cell biology, computer science, chemistry or pharmacology. When I inquire about "soft skills", I am often met with looks of confusion. This blog provides a few examples of "soft-skills" to help scientists build and realize these important "other skills".

Teamwork skills

A PhD student who works on a multi-disciplinary project team, e.g. a cell biologist who works with a biochemist, bioinformaticist, and pharmacologist to understand a disease pathway, must have good teamwork skills to be successful. The same is true for a Ph.D. student who works on, or leads, a collaborative project with other labs in their institution or with outside academic labs, industry, or non-profit disease foundations. These experiences provide examples that can be shared with potential employers regarding how they successfully worked on a team, lead a team, and lessons learned throughout the process.

Written Communication skills

Many PhD students write documents, i.e. manuscripts, grants, review articles, and let us not forget the ever popular thesis. While scientific communication is important, the ability to communicate with those outside your field of study is invaluable. In fact Albert Einstein is often credited with saying "If you can't explain something simply, you don't understand it well enough." To develop these skills, students can take the opportunity to write for different sources such as the school newspaper, the departmental newsletter, an industry association, disease foundation, or a personal blog.

Verbal Communication skills

Public speaking is a valuable asset for the career scientist. PhD students can build these skills through teaching, and speaking at conferences, departmental meetings, relevant societies and foundations and charity events. One should also take advantage of potential leadership roles in student organizations, as well as groups such as toastmasters.

Networking skills

Formal and informal networking opportunities abound, you just need to know where to look. Examples of formal networking opportunities include participation in student government, interest groups and clubs, and professional organizations. Some professional organizations even have student affiliates. There are also many informal networking opportunities that one can take advantage of, including common interest, advocacy and charitable groups, industry organizations, and social and professional networking events. In fact, I would bet that there is a networking opportunity to be had just about every night of the week. You just have to be willing to seek it out, and more importantly get up the courage to attend and participate. You never know who you might meet. It's truly up to you.

In today's job market the hard skills are not always enough to get you into that perfect role. Employers are looking for people who are well rounded who have the right mix of both soft and hard skills. Take initiative to immerse yourself in opportunities to grow and develop. The effort will pay off.

April 24th Event - How to Start a Successful Biotech with Non-existent Capital

Starting a company is hard and takes a lot of perseverance: there are a lot of moving parts that all need to be coordinated. But an even more basic question is where do I find the parts, and how do I put them in motion....all with no money! Come hear from people who have been there before on topics such as how to find resources on a shoestring budget, what is a must have and where you can cut corners, how to negotiate contracts and licenses, and most importantly where to look for money. We have assembled a panel of seasoned entrepreneurs and professionals who have all "been there and done that" to provide insight into how to start a biotech with non-existent capital. We invite you to come and learn from the experts.

March 7, 2014 Job Search Bootcamp Blog, by Lynes Torres, Blog Writer for Propel Careers

Some people sleep in. Some people hit the snooze button. Others spring out of bed and head to bootcamp... The Propel Careers Job Search Bootcamp is not a sweat session, though. This bootcamp is a speedy yet intense introduction to the world of life science job searching. The Job Search Bootcamp starts with a picture of the career landscape and a map to the variety of career paths within the life sciences sector. With life science job turnover averaging 3 years, the Job Search Bootcamp is a great way for both the newly minted PhD or postdoctoral fellow, and the senior researcher to keep abreast of their career options. In addition, this bootcamp weighs in on some of the common questions and assumptions about careers in life science:

Is it better to work for a smaller or larger company?

Which alternative careers are welcoming science PhDs?

How do I identify and pitch my transferable skills?

How should I identify good companies to work for?

What should I know about a position before I accept the offer?

How does HR use LinkedIn?

How do I approach a promising job description that I'm either over- or under-qualified for?

The wisdom and insight shared during this Bootcamp are as warm and welcoming as the fresh coffee available to participants. If you missed the most recent offering of Job Search Bootcamp, Propel will be offering this workshop again in the near future. Job Search Bootcamp is part of a weekly workshop series that, collectively, provide participants all the tools they need to maximize their career development.
