Early on as a student pharmacist, the ability to blend science and business attracted me towards a career in the pharmaceutical industry. During my time at Rutgers I pursued this interest by taking every opportunity I had to gain exposure to the industry and connect with professionals who had chosen this career path. As my days as a student neared an end, I felt I had put myself in a good position to hit the ground running after school as a freshly minted industry pharmacist.
Unfortunately, I initially was not able to obtain any industry fellowship or full time offers as the competition had reached such a high level. I found myself approaching graduation with more uncertainty than ever regarding where I would start my professional career. Nonetheless, I continued to leverage my network and kept looking for industry opportunities. A month later, a friend alerted me to a brand new Drug Safety & Surveillance Fellowship at J&J. I jumped on this late breaking fellowship opportunity and ultimately was extended an offer which I gladly accepted.
