1:15 - 3:15 pm       Career Management Essentials:Job Search Methods, Tips for your Resumes, CVs, Cover Letters and Interviewing Exercises

Led by Profs. Patrick Gordon and Dan Eustace.

Patrick Gordon and Dan Eustace have served members of several societies, local sections and universities in sharing behaviors, emerging ideas and best practices for managing your careers. They find most campuses, while well intentioned, are not staffed with career placement professionals who interview, work with and supervise technical "knowledge workers," like chemists and engineers.

They deliver fun, informative and practical sessions that highlight today's successful job search tactics and methods, tips for your public relations documents (resumes, CVs, cover letters, etc.), and interviewing exercises that aim to improve your performance.

Both Patrick and Dan serve as ACS career consultants and workshop presenters.
