The MGSN Career Fair opened up with a motivating talk by keynote speaker and entrepreneur Dr. Randall Pinkett. Dr. Pinkett encouraged the audience to learn from failures, be passionate about what you do, and have an entrepreneurial mindset. Following the keynote address, graduate students and postdocs had the opportunity to personally interact with ready-to-hire employers by presenting their scientific work in a poster session. Employers present at the career fair represented various companies including DE Shaw, Healthcare Consultancy Group, Merck, Intel, Propel Careers, and Brookhaven National Laboratory. The event came to a close upon a networking session over lunch.
