Careers fair: ChemCareers 2012
The RSC's online careers fair goes from strength to strength with a bigger and better programme in 2012. Get online and get involved
Hosted on MyRSC, ChemCareers 2012 builds on the success of previous ChemCareers events in highlighting the breadth of career opportunities available to chemical scientists in academia, the chemical industry and other sectors.
