UCSC Life Science Courses Can Fill Gaps in Your Background

I’ve been asked about my advice on changing functions within a sector, across sectors and from outside the life science industry a lot the past couple of weeks. I find myself asking the same questions of the persons inquiring: “What is it you want to be when you grow up? Have you been networking to find a job and career path that fits you? Have you explored where you have gaps in your experience and/or knowledge to be a credible candidate for likely achievement of your preferred path and functional objective? These questions then lead to questions about courses that can help fill in the gaps.
I’ve listed below upcoming courses fyi so you don’t miss knowing about those of interest and one, specifically, to help you with Career Opportunities in Biotechnology and Drug Discovery.
Note that all the UCSC Extension classes have discounts available through a specified date prior to the start of the course. I apologize to only get this email to you today, Oct. 24th–the discount deadline for the a couple of the courses.
Hope these are helpful to you in planning a career path change or achieving an advancement in the function of interest. The courses appear in downloadable file Upcoming Bioscience Courses at UCSC Extension Starting in November
