HELP me make my deicison

Postby Anonymous User » Tue May 03, 2011 2:13 pm

Trying to decide between a position at the Biotech Industry Association or NASA's Kennedy Space Center. My ultimate career goal is to do IP lit at a large firm.

What does TLS say?

I would think that the Biotech job would be more appropriate for your career goals, but the Kennedy gig just sounds so damn badass

Biotech Industry Association or Biotech Industry Organization?

I've never heard of the former. The latter is a pretty big deal and would be an easy yes for me given your goals.

Space Center gig sounds incredibly badass, but NASA's perpetual funding woes would make me nervous about my job security.

Are you worried they're going to shut down between now and August?

My mistake, it is the latter.



Thanks for all of your help everyone. I made my decision and will be spending the summer at BIO.

given your goals, this is TCR... despite the phone numbers you will miss out on from not working at NASA

He/she didn't say whether or not it was a summer position.
