David G. Jensen
David Jensen writes about the issues that scientists and engineers face when transitioning from their academic roots into the world of industrial employment. He has written the “Tooling Up” column for Science Careers since 1997. As a scientific recruiter working in the life sciences since the mid-1980s, he has seen the biotechnology world expand from a few companies in the pharmaceutical arena to thousands of employers across industries such as agriculture, chemical, food, and nutrition. As a journalist with a lifelong interest in science, David aims to provide his audience with the kind of advice that readers can take and apply immediately to make a difference in their own careers.
