We know your chances of obtaining a well-paying job go up with a college degree on your wall. However, Pew Research Center concludes that the 2020 employment rates due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic mirror those of the Great Depression. The pandemic is making it extremely difficult for recent college graduates to enter the workforce successfully, despite their heightened qualifications from advanced education.
The PTC Talent Pipeline Program (TPP) – a one-year global fellowship program aimed at providing recent graduates real-world experience in the biopharmaceutical industry and related professions – includes myriad research, finance, commercial, compliance, quality, legal, information technology (IT), and communications opportunities for recent college graduates. Throughout this immersive fellowship program, participants will be provided mentorship, job coaching, career counseling, and leadership training.
“Amid this global pandemic, many talented and hardworking recent graduates are rightfully worried about being able to enter the workforce. While this is an unfortunate reality, at PTC we want to help and be part of the solution.” – CEO, Stuart W. Peltz, Ph.D.
The Talent Pipeline Program will provide approximately 30 fellows a one-year program of real-world training experience, along with a stipend and benefits through a third party vendor. Certain roles will require participants to live near PTC’s research, technical operations, or manufacturing sites in New Jersey and California. Participants working in other roles will be virtually based and can be living anywhere. Successful participants will be provided a Certificate of Completion, a letter of reference, and consideration for future positions at our company.
This program has been designed to help graduates bridge the gap between education and the professional world, while providing compensation, access to health insurance and exposure to on-the-job experience. If a career in pharma is what you’re looking for, apply online today.
