For details, please see the Scismic Website. I get access to these because I am signed up on their website (free).

If you are interested in a career within Biotech then these webinars are really worth checking out, as is Scismic. I would also recommend the CV template workshop they did in association with Overleaf a while back. Please see the Overleaf Webinars page for more details.

However these webinars / workshops are interesting anyway and have some useful ideas / advice etc.

LaTeX – Customising the Overleaf / Scismic CV

I made some modification to the Scismic CV template to make it suitable for my needs, however some of these modifications may be useful to others.

Firstly the sectioning on this is excellent, especially if combined with lists

\section{Education: The Open University}
\begin{itemize}
\item Certificate in Contemporary Science, Open University, 2012 
\end{itemize}

What is also useful is being able to comment out individual entries. This is good if a specific course is not applicable to the post you are applying for. To do this just place a % at the start of the line.

%\item Planets: an introduction, (S196),                                2006

This is fine, but what about whole sections such as a specific job or volunteer entry?

Firstly add this to your preamble

\usepackage{comment} % allow comments

Then add this before and after the section you want to remove

\begin{comment}
\end{comment} 

The nice thing about this, is that by commenting these out

%\begin{comment}
%\end{comment} 

The entry is restored.

While not strictly needed you can add clickable urls in to your CV

\usepackage{hyperref} % allow urls in document
\hypersetup{
	colorlinks,
	citecolor=black,
	filecolor=black,
	linkcolor=black,
	urlcolor=black
} % set up hyperref

Goes in your preamble, while using the following makes a line of text a url which people can click, use sparingly though.

\url{http://your-url.co.uk/}

I have also added page numbers, which can be useful.

\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage{datetime}

\fancyhf{}
\fancyfoot[R]{}
\fancyfoot[L]{\thepage}
\pagestyle{fancy}

This is not perfect, but does work.

Hopefully these tips are helpful to people. This template is really flexible and overleaf have quite a few very professional looking templates. [6] along with cover letter templates [7].

I have added a section on jobs and employment to my forum [8].

Biotechnology Definition

As I have been making posts on the various webinars I have been attending. I decided to make a post to point to the definition of Biotechnology. This is for informational reasons. Included links to a few forms too.

How to Find and Apply to Industry Roles

So I recently attended the Scismic [1] webinar on How to Find and Apply to Industry Roles This follows on from last months webinar.

Some really useful tips here on what to look for, how to match skills to roles, how to emphasise your skills / experience / expertise to the job description. Different skills and types of roles between academic and industry experience and how you add these to your CV to gain the attention of the Hiring manager.

A really good webinar. I am adapting my notes as I am not looking at working in Biotech, nevertheless the idea of the informational interview could be really useful going forward.

If you are looking for a job in Biotech. I would recommend reaching out to Erin at Scismic and seeing how they can help. They are a job matching service, so they can take your skills etc and match to possible vacancies.
