veski kickstart at the CoE 2018 Imaging Summit

5 December

On Monday, 19 November 2018 veski partnered with the Centre for Advanced Molecular Imaging to deliver a veski kickstart to PhD students participating at the 2018 Imaging CoE Summit. The summit, an annual event providing a dynamic program of presentations, workshops, poster sessions and networking functions, was this year held at the RACV Cape Schanck Resort from 19-21 November.

The students from the partnering institutions who attended the conference were provided with a veski kickstart session to equip them with the tools required to make the transition from academia to industry.

Professor James Whisstock, Centre Director, opened the proceedings by welcoming students to the Summit.

This was followed by a panel discussion and Q & A with representatives from industry reflecting on their own career pathways including the pitfalls and hurdles they faced along the way and the methods they engaged to help steer their careers, with a key message to extend and develop your networks to maximise the available opportunities.  Students heard from Dr Erol Harvey, Ms Sophie Krantz, Dr Bill Hill, Dr Neda Mirzadeh and Ms Marilyn Jones.

On the conclusion of the panel discussion, Ms Julia L Page, MD and veski chief executive, introduced Ms Marilyn Jones from Marilyn Careers to commence with her workshop.  Marilyn provided an indepth practical guide to Resume development with some excellent tips for applying for positions within science industries to ensure a Resume stays at the top of the pile.
