A few quick and interesting things: Thing the first: Chemjobber has put up an interview with Daniel Levy on becoming a pharma consultant. It's quite interesting, and he's got some useful insights. His last lines especially caught my eye. "In today’s economy, there are plenty of excuses for not getting paid. However, there are no excuses for not working."  Here's part 1, and part 2. Thing the second: Career fairs on the web? Yuppers. ACS's inaugural Virtual Career Fair will be held November 2-3 from 9 am to 6 pm EST. RSC's ChemCareers is also having a virtual career fair, November 15-19. If you haven't checked them out in a while, it's worth a poke around on their website. They're got this new ChemCareer TV thing that will be posting profiles of 20 working chemists, I'm assuming during the career fair. Looks interesting, although I'm a wee bit distracted by the guy's hair in the preview video. You don't need to be a member of the ACS or RSC to sign up for either of those. Also? They're free. Thing the third: I've got some rockin like Dokken guest bloggers lined up for the next few weeks. (But not giving any hints on who they are! You'll just have to show up and see.) I've got space for a few more, so if you're interested in taking part, please send me an email at ljkboerner AT gmail DOT com, or leave a comment here.
