Synopsis
Day of Science & Careers 2014 is SCI's annual career event. The meeting is designed for Early Career People with a particular focus on providing information about the wide range of careers covered in the chemical, and chemical using, industries. You may be surprised to learn that over 70% of people working in these industries work in SMEs (small and medium enterprises), so there are lots of opportunities beyond the large organisations you may have heard of so far.
