| I got a job!It took long enough but I got a job as a biotech associate at a reputable firm. So far I love it. I wanted to share my perspectives on the process but the board is dominated by undergrads looking for BB opportunities and people who don't even come close to my sector.

| How did people find out about positions?I'm hoping this is a unique post since I haven't found one that answers this question exactly, but here it goes. How did everybody find out about the positions they've either interviewed for or were actually hired?

| job application feedbackI'm working towards switching careers from biomedical research to equity research and feel a little lost. The lack of feedback throughout the application process is frustrating but understandable given how many people apply for the same jobs.
