You are back! :)
Hope you had a nice vacation (?).
I visited the acs website you sent me, and under CCP I requested you to be
I was at the Biospace career fair in Burlingame and forwarded my resume to
some small companies, such as Vaxgen, Cotherix, Codexis.
At the fair I also submitted my resume and cover letter to Gilead
Sciences. I applied for a Sr. Research Associate position (synthesis).
Moreover, I talked to Bayer Healtcare’s people (from engineering,
manufacturing and also to the hiring manager of R & D). The engineering
guy turned out to be a german guy, called G, with whom I had a nice
conversation. He suggested me to start from analytical chemistry
department. So I talked to the R&D person, E. She was interested in my
analytical background and german skill. She gave me her business card and
asked me to e-mail her my resume. I did that already on thursday.
I was searching online for some analytical jobs at Bayer Healthcare and I
then contacted G to find out about the specific tasks. We should talk
on the phone some time next week.
Before coming to the fair, I didn’t consider Bayer, as they don’t have any
openings for someone with my background. Now, I am also open to analytical
work. I will keep you updated.
I as well talked to two scientific recruiters, and after the fair I
e-mailed them my resume, as requested. I have an appointment with one of
them on Monday, October 30th, 2006. We will have a detailed conversation
about my qualifications and interests. I think it is not a bad idea to
have the recruiters to find me a position.
That’s pretty much what was significant all this time.
