Careers in Transition (CIT) – ChemJobs
The meetings are posted here, month-to-month, and also in the Section’s events calendar, at the bottom of our homepage, and in the Section’s newsletter, The Indicator. You are strongly urged to register when you are planning on at tending a meeting to ensure we will have adequate facilities. Please fill out the registration form on the right. ✎
Meetings normally run from 5:30 to 9:00 PM with a pizza break at 6:30 (@ $5).
We are also available at most topical group meetings. At the meetings, a job board will be available for your perusal and we are willing to introduce you to key hiring managers that are present. You are welcome to join us in a pre-meeting session which starts an hour before the meeting. During the session you will be given advice on perfecting your elevator speech and ways that you can prepare for encounters with key hiring personnel. Contact Bill Suits at if you will be attending a pre-meeting session.
For further help contact a career consultant or use the National ACS Career resource center.
