Jo Ramos-VonRitchie, PhD

Patent Agent - US Patent & Trademark Office

The Association really helped me in figuring out who I am. The material just really clicked for me and made sense. Being able to just talk to somebody was great. The Cheeky Scientist Association is really interactive, the people really do care about you.

Adwait Ranade, PhD

Senior Research Scientist - Sterling Pharma Solutions

I wanted to change my current job and I had been trying for at least the last six to seven months. I had applied, applied, applied, gone through all the people I know, contacted them, forwarded my resume. I had done every possible thing, applied for 90 or 100 jobs and had not heard back from a single position. I really learned a lot from Cheeky Scientist–how to prevent yourself in an interview situation, what to answer and what not to answer. The most helpful part for me was the salary negotiation guidance, which was phenomenal.

Santi Suryani Chen, PhD

Business Development Manager - CRO

Before joining Cheeky Scientist I didn’t know how I was going to do this. Where do I even begin? So I saw Cheeky Scientist on Facebook and on LinkedIn and I thought, maybe I should give it a shot. It was a leap of faith but I did it anyway, and I’m so grateful I did.

Airama Albisa, PhD

Regulatory Affairs Specialist - Farmhispania Group. S.L.

For me the Association was helpful because I was able to see all the different paths available, other than just working in the lab. The private group was great because of all the information there, as well as the support from all the other people facing the same challenges you are.

Aimee Vozenilek, PhD

Scientist - Meso Scale Diagnostics

I’ve gone to so many great meetups where I’ve gotten great pieces of advice that I’ve been able to implement, they’ve introduced me to people who have been crucial in keeping me motivated and focused during my job search. It’s really encouraging, when it’s a difficult time in your career and you’re not sure how to move forward, to have all these people cheering you on.

Julia Isacescu, PhD

Medical Writer - Own Company

There were a lot of layers I need it to really work through, the structure of the program addresses those things. You’re really not alone, there was a lot of support in the network.
There was a ridiculously amount of content that’s just so rich, it’s been an enriching experienced honestly. I learned a lot and I know I still have a lot to learn but I’m doing well.

Rubenka Bandyopadhyay Campbell, PhD

Data Scientist - Itron

I really liked that I was able to connect with a lot of other CSA members via Linkedin and get some information to reuse. Another thing that I did liked was not just the resume review but also people who would post their transition stories. That to me was really inspiring, almost like a blueprint.

Galen Miller, PhD

Senior Scientist - Horizon Discovery

The biggest part was letting go of my publications and presentations. CSA taught me I could turn them into numbers for industry to understand, and that was powerful.
