Abstract

Rutgers' interdisciplinary Job Opportunities for Biomedical Scientists (iJOBS) Program, a partnership between Rutgers' Center for Innovative Ventures of Emerging Technologies and the School of Graduate Studies, is available to over 2,000 trainees, spread across 27 distinct graduate programs in 3 geographically distinct campuses, and shares programming with regional universities. Trainees progress through four program phases; P1 introduces career choices; P2 offers externships/shadowing, mentorship and career-specific pedagogy; P3 guides the trainee's job search and P4 welcomes iJOBS alumni to share their perspectives. NJ-based trade organizations facilitate program branding and corporate/non-profit partners enable program content, informing a diversity of careers including clinical research, regulatory affairs, public policy, business/finance consulting, scientific writing, and entrepreneurship. Programming of note includes (career) panels, job simulations, company site visits, networking events, career fairs, talent/strength assessments, and personal branding. iJOBS is deemed a veritable success as we deliver motivated, skilled, and informed bioscience doctorate fellows into the workplace.
