Weekly Biotech Resources from the Collaboratory Catalyst Community: Week of November 3rd

Read, Watch, Listen, a curated Collection of resources and stories from around the web

Welcome to our weekly showcase featuring a curated selection of valuable resources shared by our community. We explore various topics, including professional development, diversity, equity, and mentorship. We enjoy sharing these resources and hope they will benefit you as much as they have benefitted us.

In our blog post last week, we took a deep dive into the components of a compensation package. Understanding those elements is crucial for navigating the negotiation process confidently and effectively. In this follow-up, we'll discuss tactics and formulas to help you ace negotiations and secure a job offer that meets your expectations. Before you engage in any negotiation, the first step is to ensure you're well-prepared!

This week, Carina Clingman, the founder of the Collaboratory Career Hub, shared her valuable insights in an article for BioSpace on how to navigate the challenging funding landscape and keep your company lean while still accessing essential expertise.

The key is hiring fractional experts in critical areas such as Finance, Research and Development, Operations, Marketing and Branding, Human Resources, Talent Strategy, and Legal. These experienced professionals can provide strategic support without breaking the bank, allowing you to focus on what matters most: advancing your biotech innovation. In today's post-pandemic world, the rise of hybrid and remote work makes it easier than ever to tap into expert resources, no matter where they're located. Stay resourceful, stay innovative, and keep pushing your biotech startup forward.

Carina was also featured on the Hopkins Biotech Podcast, and her episode just dropped this week! She had an insightful conversation with the host, Joseph Varriale, about all things biotech hiring. Whether you're actively seeking a job, a recruiter, or simply intrigued by the biotech industry, this episode is a treasure trove of actionable insights. Carina covers essential topics like optimizing your LinkedIn profile, getting real about your resume, the importance of authentic networking, dispelling common myths, and why it's never too early to kickstart your job search. Don't miss this opportunity to gain valuable knowledge and take your biotech career to the next level! Tune in now to the Hopkins Biotech Podcast episode to catch all the wisdom Carina shared.

What if you had that job? What if you were with that person? What if there’s a better option out there? If you find yourself asking these questions, Patrick McGinnis invented the term for what you’re experiencing: FOMO.

First coined by McGinnis in a piece published by the Harvard Business School newspaper, FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) describes the anxiety we feel when thinking that other people are having more fun and living more fulfilling lives than we are. As McGinnis says, “We are constantly comparing ourselves to other people. We are seeing the options that are out there. And then we're saying, what I'm doing right now isn't good enough. I am missing out on something.”

In this podcast episode of Think Fast, Talk Smart, McGinnis explains how conscious decision-making can help us feel more sure of our choices and experience less anxiety about the options we pass up.

In this week's episode of our Building Biotechs Podcast, Carina and Alison had a fantastic conversation with two remarkable guests, Joe Daccache and Carl Schoellhammer. Joe, a project leader at DeciBio, a precision medicine strategy consulting firm, brings his expertise with a PhD in Immunology from Harvard, while Carl, recognized as one of Business Insider's 30 Business Leaders under 40, is a principal at DeciBio and the founder of Suono Bio, a groundbreaking biotech focused on therapeutic delivery.

They delve into the world of biotech strategy and discuss the valuable insights that aren't typically taught during a PhD but are essential for early founders and career-building. Join us for an engaging and informative episode filled with laughter and wisdom as they explore the intriguing aspects of the biotech industry. Don't miss out on this one!
