Event details:

Overview:  
You are cordially invited to a visit to Affymetrix based in Santa Clara, CA.  Beyond the opportunity to see the inner workings of a biotech company, come learn about what else you can do with your degree and how to get a job in the biotech industry…

 Come visit Affymetrix and gain insight into:

  1.  How a product becomes a product.
  2.  Demystifying what the different job titles mean.
  3.  Seeing what really happens to your resume when you submit it.
  4.  Getting that job (hint: you don’t necessarily need another degree)!

Don’t miss this opportunity to see the inner workings of a biotech company and interact with former Stanford alums.

 The agenda includes: a panel discussion, group lunches for more casual discussions with Affymetrix employees in various positions, tours of the research and development facilities, and an interactive discussion on alternative career options in biotech.
