We are a dynamic and visionary organization committed to improving people’s lives in our community through the transforming power of chemistry. We strive to advance the broader chemistry enterprise and its practitioners for the benefit of Kalamazoo, Allegan and Van Buren counties.
Local American Chemical Society (KACS) members and students interested in Chemistry are invited to attend a fun and interactive networking event. Co-hosted by the Center for Career and Professional Development, Kalamazoo College Chemistry Department and the American Chemical Society Kalamazoo Chapter.
The premise for this event is to connect local chemistry college students (WMU, K Col, KVCC) with local working chemists for information sharing. The set up will be like that for speed dating, with participating chem students rotating through 5 minute (or so) sit downs with participating working chemists, the students asking questions related to chem careers, the working chemists providing answers/information based on personal experience. KACS has been asked to provide members to serve as a diverse working chemist panel. This is a great, painless, low time commitment opportunity for us to share our knowledge and experience with chem university students looking to start their careers.
Whether you are a potential mentor (experienced individual who can advise & guide on potential career paths) OR a student interested in meeting with chemistry professionals, please join us for this gathering!
