Join us September 27th as we return to AU to share our career journeys, learnings, and current roles at Novo Nordisk.
We started to study Molecular Biology together back in 2007, and since then, our paths have led us to Novo Nordisk. Today, we hold diverse positions across the organization, ranging from early science to clinical development and production.
This event includes what we wish we had known twelve years ago. We will talk about transitioning from Academia to Industry, landing your first job, balancing career aspirations and reality, being part of big pharma, and the culture and work of Novo Nordisk.
We promise to be honest, with no glossy company slides and little Novo jargon, and plenty of time for questions. Discover what we really do on a daily basis and how we navigate the corporate world. Your curiosity drives the conversation.
Current roles - we all studied Molecular Biology together from 2007
