Janine Renée Geller

Finding employment after graduation was much more difficult than I originally thought. I sent out 30 résumés to pharmaceutical companies in the greater Boston area, and only five responded. Eventually, the right company came along: in August, I started working as a scientist for ArQule, a drug development company outside of Boston.
