Management’s Perspective Of PhD Job Transitions (Industry Careers For PhDs Podcast)


From a manager’s perspective, what is the best way to present yourself as credible industry candidate?

Do you want to know how industry management team’s evaluate job candidates? Do you want to know how they expect you to network, interview, and negotiate a salary contract?

In this episode of the Industry Careers for PhDs podcast, we interview Michael Smith, M.B.A, a former manager at Johnson & Johnson and Align Technology. Michael’s experience includes hiring top technical candidates and managing new technical employees after the hiring process.

  • How to properly interview at biotechnology and biopharmaceutical companies
  • The one thing you should do right after receiving a job offer
  • How to negotiate a salary contract 10% higher than the original offer
