How to get into Research Labs (Update)

With such great success last semester, Hanging Out with a Prof is back for more!

We would like to thank everyone for attending our first webinar on How to Get Into Research Labs! Over the course of the event, our three panelists answered a wide variety of questions submitted by members and participants. Speaking from their experience applying to, working in and hiring for UBC research labs, they touched on everything from what makes a strong application, how to leverage your existing skill set and their strategies for getting your foot in the door, including the dreaded “Previous Experience Required” found on many postings.

Lee, Sakshi Sahakari for joining us! Don’t forget to stay tuned for future events in the series.
