Event promotes research

The second annual Bio-Research Career Information Day, planned for 1-5 p.m. today in the Houston Room at the University Center, will gear students for jobs featuring a chat format.

‘One of the great things about reality chat is that students will be able to learn from professionals and also get to know about their career paths,’ University Career Services career counselor Lisa Renaud said.

Organized by the Biomedical Engineering Society, the Office of Undergraduate Discovery Programs, University Career Services and Engineering Career Center, reality chat allows students to network with working professionals.

‘Research firms are eager to recruit more people,’ Veronique Tran, director of undergraduate discovery programs at UH, said. ‘Events like these give them the opportunity to meet talented students.’

The event this year emphasizes other career options, such as discovery, design, analysis and commercialization aspects of biomedical research.

Tran said students from all majors and classifications are encouraged to attend the event.

‘The whole idea is to have a one-stop shop for students from where they can get the most relevant and accurate information about different career choices that they have,’ Tran said.

‘Attending this event will provide them with a wealth of information that otherwise they would have to go to different sources to obtain.’
