San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 07, 2013

San Diego State University is sponsoring an open house for the BRIDGE grant-funded BioCollaborative Life Science Immersion Program (LSIP) Friday, April 12 from 1-3 pm in the SDSU Extended Studies Center.

Attendees will learn about the Biotechnology Readiness, Immersion, Certification and Degrees for Gainful Employment (BRIDGE) Project and the grant-funded LSIP during the open house. The LSIP is offered through the BIOCOM Institute, a collaborative partner in the BRIDGE Project. Light refreshments will be served at the open house.

Scheduled panelists at this event sponsored by SDSU's College of Extended Studies include:

BRIDGE Life Science Immersion Program grant participants

Grant funding is available to qualified individuals for this program. Students are encouraged to register early since the BRIDGE grant ends June 30, and there is limited space available.

This online LSIP certificate program is geared toward transitioning professionals, veterans and active military, unemployed individuals, graduating college students, job seekers, and life science employees, who have an interest in advancing their careers in the life sciences and biotechnology industry. Grant funding is available through the BRIDGE Project, a San Diego State University Research Foundation project made possible by an American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grant.

The LSIP includes four major components designed to provide individuals with the business acumen needed to successfully transition into and move up the ladder in life science careers:

Track One: Business Environment
Track Two: Finance
Track Three: Product/Process/Project Development
Track Four: Marketing/Sales/Business Development

Grant participants will have access to grant-funded career resources, all key components necessary to engage in a productive job search. Career resources include workshops that cover five main areas: résumé writing and cover letters, LinkedIn, networking, interviewing, and salary negotiation.

The instructors are career specialists with a proven track record of successful job placements who bring valuable knowledge and tools to assist grant participants in their job search.
