Any tips for recent grad?

Hello ACS community,


I thought I would just try this resource and see what I can get. I recently received my B.S. in chemistry and I have been trying for the past two months to get a job. I think my resume looks alright: I have a three month organic synthesis experience and a ten month research experience as an undergrad. I have been to six interview but can't get anywhere past the interview! It's so frustrating and I'm starting to lose hope. I just don't think I'm ever gonna be good at answering interview questions "correctly". I always panic when I don't have a winning response in my head by the time the last syllable of that question leaves the interviewer's lips.

Where should I be looking for good jobs in chemistry and how do I win at the interview?
