For those who want to have a successful career in biopharma, these seven tips are a great way to get started.

While you might know which qualifications you need or the technical capabilities you should have for a biopharma career, be sure not to neglect your soft skills.

That was one of the top tips we heard from NIBRT’s director of projects, Killian O’Driscoll, at the fifth annual Careers in Biopharma event.

O’Driscoll cited teamwork, communication and project management as some key skills every candidate should hone as they take their first steps into a biopharma career.

The NIBRT Careers in Biopharma event hosted a variety of the biggest names in industry as they sought to attract top talent and spread brand awareness.

We spoke to several recruiters and employers from some of the biopharma giants to find out what other top tips candidates should take note of in order to give themselves an edge.
