Hello, Edward

First of all and most importantly, thank you for your service.

I have worked in the high technology, biotechnology and life sciences industries for most of my career, as an employee, an executive manager and a consultant. In that period that spans 50 years, I have worked for leading pharma companies and helped 30 start ups come to market.

If you are interested in entrepreneurship and regulatory affairs, I would recommend that you seek positions with start-up life science companies. Most, if not all, medical products, whether services, devices or drugs, must go through a regulatory process with the FDA to gain approval for their product before commercializing it for sale to their selected customers and markets.

If I was seeking employment in this field, I would seek out entrepreneurship start up incubators--there are usually one or two in every major city--attend their meetings and events and introduce yourself to the start up founders to explore job opportunities. I would also seek out consultants who are focused on regulatory approval and work for these start ups to assist them in the process.

Of course, there are other industries that have some form of regulatory approval, although I think biotechnology and life sciences are the hot fields to be in and see a great deal of growth and job opportunities.

Much success in your career and life. Stay safe and well.

Regards,

David F Eastman, MS, CEO, Gamma Therapeutics and U.S. Navy Veteran
