Clinical Trial Specialist – Sirjana Gurung

Sirjana Gurung

12 Oct Clinical Trial Specialist – Sirjana Gurung

Course studied: BSc. Biomedical Sciences with Professional Experience
Year of graduation: 2015


When I left Brunel, my plan was…
I did my placement in GlaxoSmithKline as an Associate Study Manager. Since then, I always knew that I wanted to work in the area of Clinical Research.

At the moment…
I’m working as a full time Clinical Trial Specialist in PAREXEL International.

How I have developed professionally since graduating…
I have become more confident in being able to communicate and network well with colleagues within and outside my company. I’m grateful that our university course involved activities such as group works, PowerPoint/poster presentation, where I developed team-working skills, communication and presentation skills, which has aided me securing a promotion.

My advice to recent graduates/students graduating soon…
Take full advantage of Brunel Careers service as they help you to polish your CV, cover letter and brush up on your interview skills. I know looking for jobs can be stressful sometimes but never give up. While you’re waiting for your course results or feedback from your job application, you can utilise your free time to do some volunteering works i.e. in charity organisations, where you learn new skills which can be added in your CV as well.
