What is Sci-ROI’s role in the 1-on-1 interaction session?
Sci-ROI is a not-for-profit organization that addresses the disconnect experienced by #Indian #STEM professionals abroad for diverse opportunities in India. The Sci-ROI team contributes to this vision by offering a platform, such as 1-on-1 interactions, where various stakeholders can engage with each other. Over the years, we have excelled in organizing various events that have benefited a large number of early career professionals and some of them have become part of our SciROI India network.
What is the benefit of 1-on-1 interaction session organized by the Sci-ROI with various Indian institutions/organizations/companies?
The primary advantage of participating in a one-on-one interaction session is that candidates have the opportunity to directly learn about the specific requirements of available positions from the relevant authorities in person. This provides attendees of the annual event with a distinct advantage in preparing for their future endeavors. While information about the available opportunities can already be accessed on our job portal webpage, the in-person interaction allows for a deeper understanding and personalized insights. Moreover, our annual event attendees gain the additional benefit of building new professional networks, creating potential for future scientific collaborations.
When can I see the professional interest of participating institutions?
Once you register for the annual event, you will log in to the portal and will see all the participating institutions and their professional interest. In addition, you will find the link under each institution to register your interest to interact with them.
When is the last date for getting a confirmed list of participating institutions?
As more and more institutions want to take advantage of the annual event, we suggest visiting the annual event webpage to stay updated. The final list of participating institutions will be available by the 5th of Aug.
After submitting my CV and summary to the profile, do I need to register for each participating institution individually?
As per your interest, you would need to register for each participating Institution of your choice.
