Industrial research and development offers scientists an increasingly wide range of career opportunities—from bench researcher to team leader, and from clinical trials to product marketing. Transitioning from an academic environment to the fast-paced world of industry takes a specific set of skills.

In this one-hour and 15-minute installment of the AAAS Career Webinar series, (FREE for AAAS members; $20 for non-members), "Working in Industry: From your resume, to interviewing, to skills for success," you'll get expert insight on how to position yourself for a successful career in industry. Our panel will discuss topics including: how to stand out in your job search, interviewing techniques, and developing flexibility for innovative environments.

Join us May 27 from 12 noon to 1:15 p.m. ET for this informative discussion.
