Cultivating a career in the business of science at times appears to be more art then science. Then there are impactful opportunities such as the Colorado Bio Fellows program that come along, which will hopefully continue to grow and function to shine a light down the path of transition from the ‘bench to the boardroom’ here in Colorado. Our life science ecosystem is extraordinarily entrepreneurial, it is then important too for those receiving newly minted Ph.D.’s and MBA’s who are interested in the business of biotech to get entrepreneurial too in the efforts to set a course for oneself. On the other hand sometimes is it served up on a silver platter and that is just the opportunity that our friends to the North at Heska (NASDAQ: HSKA) are providing. Specifically a position as Corporate Development Intern is open (here), according to their web site. If it were a few years back I would have been sleeping in the hallways of Heska trying to avoid security in order to land this opportunity and business experience. Don’t delay your follow-up, this is a resume building occasion. Some highlights include:
