Solano, Danielle M.; Wood, Fred E.; Kurth, Mark J.
Journal of Chemical Education, v88 n10 p1376-1379 Oct 2011
A course entitled "Careers in Chemistry" has been developed and implemented in the chemistry curriculum. This seminar-style class exposes students to a full spectrum of career options available to chemists by hosting outside speakers. The workings and logistics of this course and its positive impact on students are described. Survey results suggest that implementation of a similar course or seminar series at other institutions may be beneficial in exposing students to career options in chemistry. (Contains 3 tables.)
