North Carolina is a hub for the biopharma manufacturing industry. Recent company relocations and expansions have resulted in an unprecedented number of jobs in this industry. With the right kind of training, these very desirable jobs are accessible to many. Whether you are a worker who has been displaced due to COVID-19, someone who is transitioning from the military, or someone who is wanting to make a career change, this is the event for you to attend.
The event will feature opening remarks from NC Secretary of Commerce Machelle Sanders followed by a panel discussion with panelists who are currently working in biopharma manufacturing jobs. They will share their career paths, let you know what a day at work is like for them, and provide information about what kind of training is needed to land jobs like theirs.
Following the panel discussion, there will be a networking session where event attendees can visit with representatives from NC biopharma companies and area training programs.
