One great way to start your job search is to build a big list of companies, labs, and research institutes where you would like to work. Then you can circle back to the websites of individual employers to conduct deeper research into their goals, products, culture, and job openings.
How to build your list? If you are planning to stay in the Seattle area, check out Life Science Washington’s Internships page. It has a huge listing of life science related organizations you can use as a springboard to construct your own list. Add in even more employers you find through networking contacts and social media.
