The ACS Career Navigator™ had a great time at the 249th ACS National Meeting and Exposition in Denver, CO! Starting on Friday, fiveProfessional Education Short Courseswere held and attendees had the opportunity to gain managerial skills and learn more about polymer, analytical or biological/medicinal chemistry. Attendees at the half-dayLeadership Development Courses gained valuable leadership skills that could be immediately applied to their professional job or ACS volunteer role.
TheACS Career Fairwas a popular spot for members who were looking to expand their career horizons. Thirty-six recruiters from companies interviewed potential candidates and 27 companies on recruiters row were giving out information to attendees. If you weren't ready to interview, ACS Career Consultants were available to give feedback on interview skills and review resumes. ACS Career Pathways Workshops™ were offered throughout the week helping members get a better understanding of what they can expect out of a career in academia, government, industry or entrepreneurship.
