The healthcare and life science sectors have been experiencing a rapid growth over the last years, thus offering multiple career options that require different levels of expertise.
Students are not always aware of the career opportunities that may be available for them after graduation, and for this reason Karolinska Institutet works to fulfill their need by organizing seminars, courses and workshops dedicated to career development.
After the great success in 2014, Medicinska Föreningen and Karolinska Institutet welcome you to join CHaSE (Careers in Health and Science Exposition) the 11th of February from 9.30 to 17.00 in Aula Medica, Solna Campus. The event is open for everyone and is free of charge! Company presentations, workshops, networking and job opportunities are waiting for you!

CHaSE team 2016 and its objectives
In partnership with Medicinska Föreningen and Karolinska Institutet, a group of motivated students started to work on CHaSE 2016 to organize a fruitful career fair for students and already working professionals.
The goal of the team was to have a panel of different companies and organizations, in order to provide a broad panel of career choices for the participants. There will be pharmaceutical, consultant, manufacturing and recruiting companies together with professional associations.
CHaSE day, what you will find
During the day, participants will have the opportunity to join company presentations and hear more about professional figures and the career options they offer. The presenting companies this year will be Novo Nordisk, MSD, E-Phy Science, MiltenyiBiotech and Astra Zeneca.
There will also be presentations by KI alumni and life sciences recruiters, who will give advice and tips on how to pursue a career in industry.
Additionally, the event will host an interactive workshop held by Naturvetarna to provide guidance and tools on how to assess individual career paths and effective ways to get there.
PhD Career Link will be running a LinkedIn Pop Up workshop for attendees at the career fair, to get the chance to create a strong LinkedIn profile and get a professional profile picture from a qualified photographer.
During the whole day participants will have the chance to talk directly to company representatives who will have their booths in the ground and first floor of Aula Medica. The participating companies and associations for 2016 are: Apotekarsocieteten, Astra Zeneca, Atlas Antibodies, BearingPoint, CobraBio, E-Phy Science, Eli Lilly, Imshealth, Region Kronoberg, MilitenyiBiotech, MSD, Naturvetarna, NGS Group, Nordic BioSite, Novo Nordisk, Poolia, Srat, Synergus, Techtum, WorkInDenmark.
