Onsite Recruiting at the ACS Career Fair

Recruiting onsite at the ACS Career Fair gives you the opportunity to attract the attention of the more than 11,000 chemists and engineers expected to attend the ACS National  Meeting in San Deigo. At our last Onsite Career Fair in Boston over 800 job seekers participated. Onsite you will be able to network with and interview qualified candidates. Moreover, you'll be able to share information about your company, its open positions, and what it's like to work there. Even before the meeting begins, you'll be able to screen candidates attending the Career Fair and make interview appointments via the ACS Career Jobs Database.
