Bioscience Trade Associations

Bioscience Trade Associations

RAPS Profile Page

On each of the bioscience trade associations where you have a user name and password, you have a profile.  You might as well use them to tell your colleagues who you are and what you do!  Some even offer space for mini-blogs or videos, articles, etc.

Bioscience trade associations are a great place to show your skills as your colleagues and potential hiring managers are here as well.  Some of these associations and societies are specific to your function or job like DIA or ASQ, some to gender or ethnicity like Women in Bio or Chinese-American Bio/Pharmaceutical Society.

If you are not in the USA or in California, do a search on your state or country and (pharmaceutical OR biotechnology) AND (society OR association).  Most states and countries have something.
