How to find volunteering opportunity in Biomedical Engineering for networking purpose?

Hi
I am a recent graduate (not American citizen) from Australia with a masters degree in Biomedical Engineering (3D bioprinting). Where can I find any volunteering opportunities for networking purposes? Will it be hard for me to find employment here? #volunteer-opportunities #foreigner #biomedical-engineering #biofabrication

Hi Claire,

Based on your profile, I am assuming you are from Australia but currently located in the US and looking for employment in the states.

If you studied at an American university, I would say to definitely check out your career services there. You can also ask your professors if they know of any graduates that studied your area of interest and if they could make an introduction for you to connect with them.

If you are not associated with university, or in addition to the above if you are, I would suggest investing time in setting up a LinkedIn profile and making it a robust representation of your expertise. There are tons of recruiters who message candidates based on keywords or skills that are in your profile, so making sure your profile gets picked up in those searches will help bring the opportunities to you. There's a wealth of knowledge online on how to make your LinkedIn profile stand out to recruiters so browse around and find a strategy that will best fit your experience!

Hey Claire,

Check in with your school's Career Services office to see if they have any information as well.

"Engineers without Borders" - https://ewb.org.au/get-involved/volunteer/

I also saw this - https://gradaustralia.com.au/engineering-internships

Hope that helps

Hello Claire,
If you are willing to travel in Canada, you may want to consider contacting the The Canadian Medical and Biological Engineering Society (CMBES). They have volunteering options. (https://www.cmbes.ca/).

Best of luck
Sophie
