This information session will also be an excellent way for job seekers to enhance their networking skills, free of charge!

Finding your Pathway Workshop

Learn about the four main career pathways available to chemical professionals: Higher education, industry, government, and entrepreneurial careers and why each one may or may not be the right choice for you. This workshop is not only ideal for graduate students and recent grads, but also experienced professionals who are considering a career change. In addition to learning about which types of careers are available in each pathway, you’ll also learn about the job market and hiring trends to help you make your choice. The workshop allows time for you to inventory your own values, interests, background, strengths and weaknesses so that you can select which career pathway you’d like to explore in detail.

The ACS Career Workshop will be held Wednesday, June 15 from 6:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. and is available to all registered attendees. You must register for the workshop during conference registration. There is a $20 refundable deposit to attend the workshop. The $20 will be returned after completion of the workshop.
