Making Chemistry Work!

ACS Presidential Event, San Diego National Meeting, March 13-17, 2016. New Reality of the Chemical Enterprise: Traditional and Non-Traditional Career Paths

Are you concerned with finding a job after you graduate?  Are you interested in learning alternate career paths for chemistry professionals?  This symposium addresses a practical need that students have.  We will attempt to provide them with information and alternate career paths that can help them to use their degrees to find fulfilling and lucrative employment in the chemistry fields. The information presented will enable the students to think 'out of the box' in planning their educational and career paths by presenting options they may not have considered.

Think about, how do you build your skills to make a great career?  Presenters include individuals working in the government such as working forensic in the FBI, conduct research in NASA, or project management in the EPA and FDA.  What about career paths in industry such as a manager, logistics, safety, quality control, quality assurance and more.  Have you ever considered being in HR and being a recruiter?  What do the small companies need? Have you considered starting your own business, what are the challenges and how do you get started? Do you want to teach the next generation of professionals?  Then you don't want to miss this symposium.  It will cover it all.   


Location: Coronado Room-Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina, March 15 and 16, 2016
