Chemistry Degree…What Next?
(8 March 2011)
Undergraduate and postgraduate students within the department were recently given an insider's view of three different chemistry career pathways at an event supported by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). Case studies looking at working in industry, teaching and science publishing were presented by Dr. Richard Ward (Johnson Matthey), Dr. Jacquie Robson (RSC Teacher Fellow, Durham) and Katie Dryden-Holt (RSC, Recruitment Executive).
In addition an informal CV clinic gave students the chance to get advice and handy tips on applying for jobs and internships. On hand to offer advice were; Prof. John Evans, Dr. Ivana Evans, Dr. Steven Cobb (all Durham Chemistry), Dr. Gordon Davison (Procter & Gamble), David Henderson (Careers, Employability and Enterprise Centre, Durham) and Mandeep Smith and Dan Younger from CY Partners Recruitment Specialists.
