Either way, join Chemia this Wednesday 3/5 as we host Katinka Csigi, an expert in the department on just this sort of stuff. She will give a brief presentation and then we will have a discussion/ Q&A about all things chemistry jobs related.

All seniors are highly encouraged to attend, it will be a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the application process or about your resumé. Juniors and underclassmen feel free to attend as well, you may get a few tips you find useful in applying to internships!
