Representatives from numerous multinational corporations and well-known organisations, including AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Castrol, Unilever and the Royal Society of Chemistry are coming to the University of Warwick on 15th January, to snap up Chemistry students.
The potential employers will deliver presentations and answers questions on careers in science. The day gives employers the chance to discuss their organisations and professions with science students at Warwick and other educational institutions in the region. Presentations will also be given on postgraduate opportunities and student placements overseas.
Over 300 students from the University of Warwick and beyond are set to kick-start their career in 2004 by attending the Chemistry Career Day.
Dr Stefan Bon, Lecturer in Chemistry at the University of Warwick, said: “Chemistry is still often seen as an old-fashioned discipline, people often think of dusty labs, white coats and environmental pollution. What people often don't realise is that chemistry is the driving force behind a lot of technological achievements in our society, for example, laptop displays, plasma televisions and personal care products. Chemistry is not a dead science at all. On the contrary it challenges and drives advances made in new scientific areas, such as biotechnology and nanoscience.”
Anyone interested in Chemistry related career will find the day invaluable. Those interested laboratory, technical and field areas, research marketing, sales or management are welcome to come along to the career day.
