Veterans in Life Science
Our initiative provides veterans access to a variety of life science industry professionals and executives. Complete with job skills workshops, an industry-focused career fair and mentorship pairing, this program provides a holistic approach to addressing skills gaps, hiring and job-search challenges, and a unique direct connection between veterans and the life science industry.
A few roles where veterans tend to thrive in the life science industry:
Our annual symposium serves as outreach for jobseekers—especially those who are from communities that are underrepresented in our industry—and is specifically designed for veterans and service members who are transitioning to civilian life.
The Biocom California Institute’s Military Fellowship Program provides meaningful career readiness experiences to local veterans interested in obtaining gainful employment in the life science. Veteran participants are matched with mentors in the life science sector, who support the veterans through a six month-long program by providing industry-specific knowledge and exposure to a variety of facets of the industry, making meaningful introductions, and assisting in goal setting and achievement.
