2REALISE INDUSTRY BITES
With the basis of Australian industry shifting to a technological footing, SSRI is well placed to inspire and encourage the next generation of students considering a career in biomedical research. To this end we had partnered with 2realise, to provide young people an opportunity to experience and better understand available career options in biotechnology, through their industry bites program.
The industry bites program aims to provide students a real-life, meaningful experience in the workplace through a bite sized industry visit concept. Our key staff spend two hours with a group of visiting students, providing them a tour of our facilities, and sharing with them the stories of our own personal career journeys. The students have an opportunity to ask questions, have conversations, and learn more about how our business operates within the context of the broader biotechnological industry.
We hope that through our partnership with 2realise we were able to motivate and inspire interested students to consider the variety of jobs on offer and the career pathways available in the exciting field of biotechnology.
“I enjoyed being able to actually see what scientists do and hear about all the different jobs within medical research.” – 2realise industry bites student from Turramurra High School
