Biocareer Connection

On April 3rd, attendees from across the region gathered at Ithaca College, in Ithaca, NY, to find out what Upstate New York has to offer in the field of bioscience. Unique individuals representing various sectors of life sciences shared their experiences and advice during panels. Attendees had the opportunity to ask questions, network, and gain an idea of what the future holds for them in the bioscience industry. Bioscience-related companies from a 15-county region of Upstate New York were in attendance to meet with prospective employees to review their skills, give them advice, discuss opportunities, and screen for employment.
