The benefits of work experience

Sam Stewart has written this article as part of the Drug Discovery and Development Careers Spotlight to help job hunters in the pharmaceutical industry gain work experience before starting a career in this sector. Take a look at this article here:

Introduction

Searching for employment can be a frustrating challenge, particularly when you have just graduated and are trying to find that first crucial entry-level job to kick-start your career.

Consider the position you may find yourself in immediately after graduation; you are an intelligent individual, newly qualified in a highly skilled scientific subject with the ambition to make a difference in the world. However, you may quickly find that obtaining that first job is more difficult than expected due to one little hitch; many companies expect graduates to be able to demonstrate some work experience.

This probably doesn’t sound fair; after all, if you have just finished your education, how can you be expected to already have industrial experience? When asked about their experience, many students will discuss their dissertation projects and, while the independent research skills gained during these projects are invaluable, they are no substitute for genuine industry experience.

So, what can you do to overcome this limitation and gain an upper hand when competing for your first role? Well, even though you are still in education, you should make it a priority to gain as much industrial experience as possible prior to graduating. This essential experience will be invaluable for applying to your first scientific role and can be attained in the following ways.

Apprenticeships

University is not for everyone. Although the most common route to beginning a scientific career, there are alternative options to university. Apprenticeships are seeing a resurgence in popularity in industrial companies. These courses often offer education up to degree level while simultaneously allowing you to gain a number of years of industrial experience.

Shadowing a pharmaceutical professional

A short work experience placement shadowing a professional is an easy way to experience life in an industrial environment. Such placements normally last 1-2 weeks and, while a single placement may not be enough, the accumulation of multiple placements will certainly show your enthusiasm for and commitment to, your chosen subject.

Degree with a year in industry

Possibly the best way of guaranteeing some industrial experience by the end of your degree is to apply for those courses which include a placement year as part of the curriculum. This is a highly recommended and often very successful method of gaining that important experience. Students with a year in industry during their degree are often prioritised as potential candidates for entry level job openings.
