Have you been thinking about career options after you complete your Ph.D. or post-doc? We invite you to join Alexander Busch, Ph.D. (PEMM ’13) and his MCB-graduate colleagues from Putnam Associates for a lunch-and-learn to hear about Consulting as a career choice.

This event is open the whole graduate community: the Putnam team will focus on Consulting career options for science Ph.D. students and post-docs, and will touch on options for masters candidates, too. Please join us whether the word “consulting” is new to you or you’re already applying to firms, and no matter how senior in your program – just started, halfway through, or writing / defending / graduating in the next few months; we want to share our experiences with everyone who is trying to plan their future!

Learning Objectives:
· What is “consulting”?
o What is unique about Life Sciences consulting as a career path versus other types of consulting or business-focused alternative careers?
o What does the day to day look like?
o What are the traits of successful consultants coming from graduate programs?
o How and when do consulting firms recruit?
o How do I build a successful resume and cover letter for the job?
o What resources are there inside of and outside of Dartmouth to continue to learn about the career path, whether it’s right for me or not, and build the resume experiences that reviewers will look for?
· Putnam Associates’ offering for Ph.D. and masters-level applicants
o What makes Putnam the 2016 Vault #1 ranked Boutique Consulting Firm, with offices right in downtown Boston and San Francisco
o Full-time positions and recruiting cycle
o The Path to Putnam, our brand new for 2017 summer mini-internship program for Ph.D.s
· Q&A – don’t be shy, ask us anything!
