As my background is in fundamental research, I didn’t know a lot about the career possibilities in clinical research. I wanted to get a better understanding where I could apply my skills in this area. In addition to attending the ECCRT course “Orienting your career in Clinical Research”, I decided to take the ECCRT career coaching. This helped me to get a better overview of the roles and functions in the area of clinical development and what skills those positions require.Together with me coach – Virginie Hamtiaux – we identified what my own strengths are and how to link them to a possible career in the pharma industry. Virginie was able to adapt each coaching session to my own situation to maximise the value for me. Week after week, I became stronger and my confidence grew in my potential to become a great clinical research professional. Thanks a lot Virginie and ECCRT.
