How to help people with their careers ?
Regular pathways to find a job
What kinds of jobs are there?
Each job can be at beginner, intermediate or advance level. Since the industry is young, we can give some indication of the skill sets needed for each level. We can find out about new application areas in bioinformatics etc.
We need to map the courses available in most universities to the jobs that are available in most places.
We need to talk to the hiring people to see what their requirement is, to employ bioinformatics people and point them to universities where their requirements are found. We need to know what is their experience in hiring people currently and may be take that information back to the universities/students (put on our web page).
Need a list:
While we cannot be go between.. there must be something from the membership with SC or local groups, which will help people to get their foot in the door. Just giving job links on our page will not be enough. We MUST play some role.
