Did you know that the Detroit Section has a Career Services Committee? One no longer needs to contact ACS headquarters for career assistance. Regardless of your degree or experience, managing your career has never been more important. The Committee Chair is Megan Klein. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thinking of changing jobs or hiring a new chemist? One of the Committee's goals is to form and maintain lists of potential employees and employers who are looking for new employees. Contact the Committee for help. Better yet, volunteer to help other Section members to realize full potential.

Thanks to Kurt Reimann's dedication, the Section has benefitted from a list of the area's employer's of chemists. With all of the recent changes in area codes, company consolidations, etc., the employer's list has become dated. Volunteers are needed to assist in updating and expanding this valuable job search tool. Please contact me if you would like to help with this project (small and large tasks available).
A good place for an ACS member to start hunting for a position is at the ACS website When you get there, look for the Build Your Career section. To get to the member's only part (Chem Jobs) you'll need your ACS ID card to get your member ID number in order to log on.
