Chemistry Career Day 2015 – April 9th

 

The 2015 Chemistry Career Day will be taking place on April 9th at the Lash Miller building on the U of T St. George Campus (80 St. George Street) on April 9th, hosted by the CIC Toronto Local Section, ChemClub at the University of Toronto and RyersonU. It’s a great opportunity for chemistry graduate students who are looking to start on their chemistry career after graduate school. There will be a broad spectrum of representatives to expose students to both ‘traditional’ and ‘non-traditional’ careers in chemistry.

Last year’s career day was a resounding success, with at least one student being hired directly from the career fair. Some of the companies who attended last year were:

Digital Specialty Chemicals
MarS
Ridout & Maybee LLP

BASF
Xerox
Toronto Research Chemicals
Sick Kids Hospital
And more!

Highlights

Representatives from over 12 chemical companies and institutions in the GTA
Presentations from you industry professionals about their path to success
An interactive panel discussion with professionals from industry and academia
Insider tips from communications experts and career educations

Kayaking on Lake Ontario

ChemClub rented tandem kayaks and we spent an evening out on the lake. We joined the Harbourfront Canoe & Kayak Centre, and kayaked around the islands. It was a good event for both experienced kayakers and first-timers. We finished the day with a BBQ back on solid ground.
