SCI's Day of Science & Careers returns on 28 April in London. This is the meeting to attend if you want to find out information on the wide range of careers covered in the chemical, chemical-using and related industries.
Over 70% of people working in the chemical related sector work in SMEs (small and medium enterprises) so you will hear presentations about them as well as about large, multinational organisations such as Shell, Unilever and GSK. We will also hear the perspective of someone working as a management consultant.
So if you want to find out how to start out in academia or industry, or hear about what it is like to work in the petrochemicals, pharma, the biosciences industries, working on a plant and in health and safety, or research into personal care and cosmetic products, this is the event for you.
The formal part of the meeting will close with tips on applying for your first job and there will be opportunities to ask questions and make suggestions, both at the meeting itself and over the informal wine and nibbles networking session that follows. The latter is also a great opportunity to network.
Those who came to the 2013 meeting reported it to be an outstanding, informative and highly enjoyable day. One delegate commented that it was the 'best meeting I have ever attended.' We hope that this year's event only builds on the positive experience had by those who attended last year.
The event is free, open to all (you do not have to be an SCI member to attend), and includes lunch, refreshments and wine and nibbles. Please click on the link below if you would like to book on to the event. Early application is advised.
We hope to see you there!
