STEM Careers in Industry – Victoria

Where will you be in five years? If you are a student considering a career in industry – how will you get there? Or if you are mentoring someone considering a transition from academia to industry – what advice do you share? What are the key skills and attributes industry seeks in their future STEM workforce?

Hosted by the Royal Society of Victoria, the Industry Mentoring Network in STEM (IMNIS) invites you to hear from STEM professionals in industry with expertise in different parts of the MedTech-Pharma and Energy-Minerals industry sectors. Learn how they apply their STEM training to lead and excel in a range of rewarding roles. An expert panel will discuss transferable skills, implicit skills (also called ‘soft’ skills), the value of a professional network, potential jobs of the future and their top tips for career success. Think outside the square and dream big about future careers!

Featuring Dr Sue Amatayakul-Chantler (Associate Director, CSL Behring), Dr Sophia Frentz (Analyst, Deloitte), Mr Eric Hayes (Senior Project Leader, BioCurate), Dr Dong Yang Wu (Group Chief of Aerospace Division, Defence Science & Technology), Dr Richard Huysmans (Principal Consultant, Raven) and Dr Marguerite Evans-Galea (Executive Director, IMNIS) as our MC.

There will be time for questions and refreshments will be served (registration opens 7:30 am). This event is for all mentors and mentees participating in the IMNIS programs in Victoria. Other STEM students, postdocs and early-career industry professionals are also welcome to attend. Seats are limited, so registration is essential.
