Consulting Mentorship Program (beta)

All academic scientists should be aware of job opportunities outside of academia and be able to access information about the pipeline to securing the best job opportunities that they can in alternative sectors.


For this reason, Científico Latino is piloting a practical program to help STEM students, particularly for those from underrepresented backgrounds, pursue jobs in consulting.

This is following our experience running a mentorship program for STEM graduate school applicants (GSMI) and a community-based program for first-year graduate students (GSEC).
