On March 5, I attended a career seminar held by KI career service. The title was How to utilise and develop your skills in Novo Nordisk – a global leader in diabetes care. The speakers came from Novo Nordisk, a well-known Pharmaceutical company with its headquartered in Denmark. The purpose of this event is to share with KI students and professionals the career life outside academia.
Personally, I really appreciate the preparation made by the speakers. Jeanette From Dack is a talent attraction professional, mainly introduced Novo as an overview. Then the principle scientist Søren Østergaard, shared with us his career story in Novo. Before this event, I knew Novo briefly through course assignment, so it was very interesting and inspiring to hear real-life story from Novo employees.
As I might work at a Pharma company in the future, it is important for me to share a common value with the company culture. Thus I would like to attend more career seminars so that I could create my own ‘company portfolio’. It might not be very deep, but at least an overview or even a ‘feeling’.
Overall, I wish all of you could find in your dream career path and establish your unique position in the market of life!
