You may have noticed that JAEP’s been dark for the last month since Leigh pushed on to bigger and better things. So it’s high time we get a new electron pusher to share his or her tales of jobseeking in the world of nontraditional chemistry careers, however you define that in today’s market.
I’m looking for someone (perhaps a student or a poor unemployed soul or a poor employed discontented soul with a boss who doesn’t read blogs) who isn’t quite convinced that the traditional academic or industry route is the one for her or him to take and who has an entertaining writing voice. Profiles of the nontraditional careers that pop up as part of your search will be a big part of JAEP, but so are the more reflective, personal ones (think Leigh’s rejection post).
In exchange, I can offer a monthly pittance and access to some great mentors.
If you’re interested in the gig or in guestposting during this interim period, leave a comment or email me at r_pepling at acs dot org.
Finally, a horribly overdue “Thank you, Leigh!” to Leigh for getting JAEP off and running.
