Vivian Fung – Panelist at Science Career Information Fair at UBC
Vivian Fung, our senior Sales & Marketing, Human Resources recruiter will be one of the six panelists at the Science Career Information Fair at University of British Columbia.
Vivian was invited to share her insights into hiring and career opportunities that are available to science students in areas outside of the traditional path. She said, “Many students tend to focus on a narrow range of career paths like Medicine and Engineering as viable options for employment. However, there are jobs in sales, operations, finance and a variety of other fields that appreciate a background in science.” She also added, “Science is an integral part of our society, and it is important that students learn about the many opportunities and career paths that are available to them with their science education as a strong foundation which they can build on with additional training and functional expertise.”
There will be a total of 6 speakers in the panels, each of whom will be sharing their experience and insights into non-traditional career paths and other unique career opportunities that can be pursued. Companies that will be attending include PepsiCo Beverages Canada, BC SPCA, STEMCELL Technologies and more.
Over 200 attendees are expected to be at the event. Students will have the opportunity to visit and network with over 20 companies after the panel. Goldbeck Recruiting will have a booth at the event, be sure to stop by.
The fair is presented by the UBC Science Undergraduate Society and the UBC Land and Food Systems Undergraduate Society on Thursday, February 25th 5-7:30PM.
