Career Exploration Programs

MassBioEd's Career Exploration Programs are designed to inspire students to learn more about life sciences higher education and careers. We work to connect science teachers, guidance counselors, and life sciences industry professionals to build an understanding of the diverse paths to a career in the life sciences.

Career Ambassador Program (CAP)

The Career Ambassadors program is designed to broaden students’ horizons and encourage an interest in the life sciences through career awareness engagements. These engagements can range from a career panel to a one-on-one informational interview with a professional. We connect educators with life sciences industry professionals that are dedicated to helping inspire and motivate the next generation by sharing their unique experiences from their professions.

Our Career Ambassadors are ready and trained to share their experiences in the life sciences and their passion for the work they do. CAP presentations can range from 10 mins to two hours, depending on the level of engagement you are looking for. Career Ambassador events usually involve a speaking presentation, a short activity, and a Q&A session. Our team will work with you to find a speaker that aligns with whatever concept your students are learning in class.
