Workshop Descriptions:

Finding Your Pathway

Learn about the four main career pathways available to chemical professionals: Higher education, industry, government, and entrepreneurial careers and why each one may or may not be the right choice for you. This workshop is not only ideal for graduate students and recent grads, but also experienced professionals who are considering a career change. In addition to learning about which types of careers are available in each pathway, you'll also learn about the job market and hiring trends to help you make your choice. The workshop allows time for you to inventory your own values, interests, background, strengths and weaknesses so that you can select which career pathway you'd like to explore in detail.

Acing the Interview

Walk into any interview with confidence. This module, the third phase of the ACS Career Pathways program, addresses the fundamentals of successful interviewing, explaining the key differences in interviewing for different types of hiring organizations. You'll learn how to address the 10 tough questions that often catch job seekers off guard. Moreover, you'll learn how to prepare your own questions to help you take charge of the interview. At the end of this module, you'll participate in two or three quick mock interviews. With the facilitator's feedback, you'll quickly incorporate what you've learned to ace your next interview and begin your new career.
