Christian Simon, Talent Acquisition specialist at AXESS, gives advice and job-seeking tips in an article for PIPELINE, the magazine for members of the Pharmaceutical Information and Pharmacovigilance Association (PIPA).
PIPA is the professional organisation for individuals in the pharmaceutical industry involved in the provision and management of information. The association was formed in 1974 and now represents over 800 members who work in a variety of pharmaceutical information management roles, such as medical information, pharmacovigilance, scientific research information and business information.
PIPELINE is published four times a year and consultants at AXESS are regular contributors.
In the article, “Surviving a Challenging Job Market”, Christian maps out a standard company selection process (a “job selection pyramid”) and explains the key activities that candidates need to take to give themselves the best opportunity of landing their ideal job.
