Help a young scientist make a great first impression in your field!
  • Sign up for a designated time in the PharmSci 360 Solution Center. Time slots are available starting at 9:00 am ET each day of the meeting.
  • Review résumés and/or LinkedIn profiles and offer tips for creating a great first impression on hiring managers

Be an Interviewer in AAPS’ New Mock Interview Program

Conduct mock interviews to give candidates a chance to hone their interview skills and develop self-confidence. Students, postdocs, and others entering the pharmaceutical sciences have asked for help in presenting themselves as the best candidate for opportunities in all professions. You can help! 

Interviews are not based on specific job openings – you do not need to have expertise in their science.

  • Sign up for a designated time in the PharmSci 360 Solution Center. Time slots are available starting at 9:00 am ET each day of the meeting.
  • Candidates should leave their mock interview with advice on presenting themselves well in an interview setting and having experienced what an interview situation feels like. 

Participate in the Mentoring Breakfast

Have informal, small group conversations with students, postdocs, or other scientists about their career plans and goals over breakfast Tuesday, October 24, 7:00 am–8:30 am ET. Share what you have learned through your own career experience.
  • Sign up to participate. Your professional details will be shared with attendees to help connect them with the right mentor.
  • Attend the breakfast, chat with participants, and offer career advice at your table.

Help First-time Attendees – Be a Conference Buddy

Help first-time attendees navigate the conference by sharing tips on how to make the most out of the meeting and AAPS. It is an easy way to enrich your conference experience and meet new scientific colleagues.

  • Sign up to be matched with a first-time attendee with similar interests.
  • You will be matched approximately a week before the meeting begins.
  • As a meeting veteran, you will contact your assigned conference buddy before the meeting to schedule times to connect during the event, such as the opening general session or a symposium that interests you both.
  • During PharmSci 360 you and your buddy can discuss the sessions you have seen, meet for lunch or dinner, browse the Solution Center, and discuss projects. What you do together is up to you!
