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.
Our member-driven Veterans Initiative Committee is comprised of veterans currently working in life science. The committee discusses the needs of current veterans transitioning to or working in a career in life science, as well as the best strategies they can implement to succeed.
Our symposium regularly includes an industry overview, company spotlights, career panels, and information on applicable education programs, all specific to veterans.
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.
