In keeping with its mission of engendering professional interaction and development within the biotech/pharma industry, the Chinese-American BioPharmaceutical Society (CABS) is offering a free mentoring program, Career Advisory Network (CAN), to help advance career goals of its active members.

CAN is a six-month program with 1:1 mentoring meetings and group network sessions. We have lined up an exceptional group of mentors for 2016 with diverse expertise and experiences encompassing pharmaceutical R&D, biotechnology development, project management, business development, patent law, management consulting, venture capital and entrepreneurs. Once matched, mentees will meet with their mentor monthly to discuss specific career-building topics. As part of the process, participants will create a personal strategic plan for identifying ways to achieve career goals.

CAN program has been successfully held for the past six years and received many positive feedbacks. It is an excellent opportunity to interact and network with a diverse group of people in academia and industry in a supportive and informal setting. 2016 CAN program will continue to provide our members an interactive relationship with mentors discussing personalized career issues such as work life balance, transition alternative career path, entrepreneurship in US and China, workplace interpersonal skills and managerial skills.

Join our kickoff event to learn more about the program details and network with mentors and other mentees. You will have the opportunity of identifying a mutually agreed-upon mentor or mentee at the meeting.

Seats are limited. The online application link and mentor list will be published CABS website after 3/26 kickoff.
