Kent Göklen is a Cornell BEST mentor and GSK's Director of Engineering, Downstream Process Development, in the biopharmaceutical business unit of GlaxoSmithKline in King of Prussia, PA. An alumnus of Cornell and MIT, he will answer your many questions about transitioning from academia into an industry career, with specific insight on how jobs are advertised, which titles are appropriate for you to apply to, and the skills valued in industry. An honest description of how industry works and how to fit in, from his perspective as an employee and manager, not as an HR professional, will ensue.
