Fellow Postdocs,

Please join us for a special workshop on "All you ever wanted to know about applying and interviewing for a position in industry (but were afraid to ask)".
We are bringing in Joe Tringali, an industry recruiter for the greater Boston area and career development speaker at the 2013 Experimental Biology Meeting. Joe is Managing Director of Tringali & Associates, Inc., and has over 20 years of progressive experience in the field.

Joe knows what companies are looking for in an employee and he can give practical advice on how to make your application stand out and what kind of questions to expect during the interview. 

The workshop will take place on Friday, January 31 starting at Noon in Chilcott Auditorium. Lunch will be served.

Joe is going to give two presentations titled:
 "The Industrial Hiring Process:  Learn the Nuances, Get the Offer" and
"10 Tough Industrial Interview Questions - 10 Good Answers".
The presentations will run from 12 to 2 PM. Afterwards, Joe is going to be available for another hour to answer additional questions.

We are expecting a high demand for this excellent opportunity to meet an industry recruiter and learn more about applying for industry positions, so please RSVP by Wednesday, January 29 to secure your spot.

This event is sponsored by DCPDA/Office of the Provost, the P.I. Track Group, the MCB Training Grant, the Immunology Training Grant and the M2P2 Training Grant.
