Career Development

Connect and Interview

Employers and Job Seekers can connect at the onsite and virtual career fair – or both!

Job Seekers

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:

  • Onsite - Dallas Convention Center
    Dallas, TX - March 16-18
  • Virtually – March 17-18 from anywhere in the world!

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.


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.

As a recruiter at the 2014 ACS Career Fair, you should take full advantage of the opportunity to reach our thousands of job seekers by hosting a booth in both portions of our career fair:

  • Onsite - Dallas Convention Center, Dallas, TX
    March 16-18
  • Virtually - March 17-18 from anywhere in the world!

Through the ACS career fair, you’ll have the opportunity to:

  • Reach thousands of global scientists and engineers
  • Promote your company through our promotional materials
  • Screen the attendees and make interview appointments in advance
  • Acquire individuals with the talents, disciplines and experience you need
  • Network with your desired candidates
