With more uncertainty in the job market for traditional research jobs than in the past, alternative career paths are becoming more attractive. If you have not been thinking about such possibilities, join us for this free interactive webinar, a third in the series, as we gather a diverse panel to discuss the various options that lay outside of the bench for chemists. The panelists will expose you to several distinct fields that rely fundamentally on chemistry and we invite you to add your own voice to the discussion.
