« I wanted to thank you for the organization of the CILS program. I found all courses very interesting but especially the CILS course was extremely useful to find a job. When I arrived in Geneva I found it very complicated to get any response from companies and after the CILS and the internship I did this situation changed dramatically. I am very grateful to all people from the company where I did the internship, who, despite not being able to offer me a position, were very supportive to help me find my next position. Thanks to them I am currently working in a company developing innovative medicines with a Research Scientist position for 3 years. »

« Looking for jobs in the pharmaceutical industry I sent about 25 applications, had two interviews and got one job offer in pharmacovigilance. I started to work at UBC in Vernier at the beginning of this month on the position as Data Entry Associate, an entry level position in pharmacovigilance, with a permanent working contract. »
