Preparing for Employment in a Global Workforce

The policy workshop Preparing for Employment in a Global Workforce, co-organized by EuCheMS and American Chemical Society (ACS), took place on 20 August during the ACS 2017 National Meeting & Exposition in Washington, DC. In this discussion aimed at undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and their professors, the workshop explored ways in which students can be better prepared for employment in the global market. Careers opportunities and trends were discussed from the point of view of experts from government, industry and academia with a particular emphasis on trends in the United States and Europe. Members of ACS and EuCheMS shared results of employment surveys to help better understand the training needs of chemists worldwide.
