Gilead Sciences, Foster City, CA

I was sure I wanted to do something other than bench science. That something could have included venture capital, management consulting, business development, medical devices and project management. I invested quite a bit of time in learning about personality types and their associated careers. Additionally, I learned how to network and interview effectively. I learned a lot along the way as I worked through a number of opportunities that didn’t pan out. Ultimately the Gilead Sciences, Inc. opportunity was the best career fit for me currently. Certainly there is a steep learning curve for my new work environment. I'm very satisfied and excited about the opportunities on my current career path.
