Securing any job in this tough economy can be a challenge, but as a scientist or engineeer, you have the skills and knowledge that ambitious employers are searching for – they just need to find you. That’s why ACS holds its semiannual career fair.
As a job seeker looking for a career in science or engineering, you have two convenient ways you can attend:
By providing a location and opportunity for job seekers and employers to meet, we help you start or enhance your career. At this career fair, you’ll have the opportunity to secure a job with leading academic, industry, nonprofit and government organizations in your field.
At ACS, we provide you with the resources you need to maximize your opportunities for landing a career. From walking you through the process of strengthening your resume to building up your interview skills, we’ll help you prepare to meet with potential employers.
Non job seekers who want to network and attend webcasts will be able to register as well. Check this page in early 2013 for registration information.
The chemical enterprise is dependent on innovation and talent – and success is impossible without the employees that bring this talent and knowledge to your organization. For years, leaders in your industry have trusted ACS to facilitate the relationship between employer and candidates, and through our semiannual career fair, you have the opportunity to secure the individuals you need to compete and excel.
