I had the pleasure and privilege of working with Joe both originally as a life sciences doctoral student at UC San Diego and since as a key industry representative, and in all roles he has been an incredibly valuable player. Joe has a long history of adding career development value to a diverse set of constituents. He has a unique capability to initiate, cultivate, and deepen relationships with key stakeholders across all titles and levels of experience.
Joe was a trusted and invaluable advisor as I considered my own career path options. Joe’s knowledge of the external business world was an incredible asset for me and for countless others, as we leveraged his perspectives to help us identify and access differentiated job opportunities.
In many ways, Joe was instrumental in my transitioning to consulting, a job in which I have since thrived. He helped me navigate the career transition waters and to ultimately end up with a perfect fit job, a clear reflection of his value as a liaison with external corporate opportunities.
Since that time, I have had the opportunity to work with Joe as part of my post-graduation professional career, particularly when I spent time leading recruiting for a top-tier life sciences strategy consulting firm. Interfacing with Joe in a formal, professional role has reflected the same poise, energy, and creativity from before, in an even more compelling manner.
