Student Industry Networking Event (SINE)
Tuesday, February 15, 2022
The Student Industry Networking Event (SINE) is being convened annually by the BIO5 Institute in partnership with the BioIndustry Organization Southern Arizona (BIOSA). SINE has been successful at connecting hundreds of UA students with representatives from the Arizona bioscience industry. As in previous years, SINE 2022 will attract undergraduate and graduate students in life sciences, medicine, chemistry, engineering, computer and information sciences, and business programs, and place them face-to-face with representatives from bioscience organizations from across Arizona and beyond.
Meeting company representatives is an important learning opportunity to prepare for future careers in industry, business, service organizations, and/or administration. Participants can ask their questions, secure important advice, meet potential mentors, pursue summer internships, and, in many cases, even achieve permanent employment after graduation with their internship hosts. We encourage students to consult with the industry leaders and UA alumni who participate in SINE about employment strategies and professional tips to ease the transition from college into the workforce.
SINE 2022 will run in three consecutive Zoom sessions:
Industry Career Coaching 101, 2:00-3:00 PM
