Novo Nordisk Career Seminar

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!

This was in fact my first job interview offer and Novo Nordisk was my dream place to work! […]
