Purpose of Career Day
The Chemistry Career Day, inaugurated in 2019, is an annual event organized by the Chemistry Professional Development (ChemPD) group of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry (DCB) for the purpose of enhancing networking between industry and the DCB graduate students and postdoctoral scholars interested in or seeking employment opportunities outside academia. The inaugural Chemistry Career Day started out with a panel discussion of UCSB Ph.D. alumni on career opportunities in industry, followed by an interactive lunch with industry representatives and students, and concluding with a company recruitment fair, with the company and their representatives staffing a table with promotional material, and inviting students and postdocs to ask about various career opportunities. Beyond the Chemistry Career Day, ChemPD is serving as the point of contact and liaison between industry, DCB graduate students, and career services on campus to maximize both career development opportunities for students as well as recruitment opportunities for industry.
