If you’re considering job opportunities in the growing regenerative medicine field, you may also consider networking online professionally. What are the benefits of spending some time for online networking when you’re considering a career in a particular field:
– possibility of getting a variety of independent and quick replies to your question from all around the world;
– get a sense (via discussions) what’s really going on and what are the trends in the field where you would pursue a career;
– personal connection with a people from your potential employer;
– transforming online connections into real meetings and collaborations.
The best platform for professional networking online is LinkedIn. I’m personally using LinkedIn for professional networking online fore the last few years and very happy with it. I’m initiating and participating in many discussions and consistently getting some interesting offers.
I’d glad to tell you that now there is a LinkedIn Group called Regenerative Medicine Careers. The founders of this group are trying to highlight all the educational and career options in regenerative medicine. This is a very good opportunity for job seekers to get valid information about the RegenMed field and career possibilities:
We intend this to be a networking group for exchanging information about careers in regenerative medicine. Let’s exchange information about recruiting, recruiters, university programs, training programs, job opportunities, job boards, companies, etc with a regenerative medicine focus.
Importantly, this Group recently became open (means no LinkedIn membership required) to view all discussions:
We are pleased to announce that, as the owners of LinkedIn Regenerative Medicine Careers group, we have just switched us to an open discussion group. All future discussions will be fully visible, searchable, and shareable on the Web. All past discussions are now closed in a members-only archive. we look forward to our future discussions now joining the broader conversation of the wider Web.
You may also consider another LinkeIn group – The Student Society for Stem Cell Research. I’d like to encourage you to join this online community and actively initiate and participate in discussions.
