ACS Webinar - How can ACS support your career as a Chemical Technical Professional?

Jul 17, 2024 | 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

There is a great shortage of qualified chemical technical professionals, jobs that require a high level of technical knowledge but not a PhD. Inspired by the recommendations set by the National Science Boards’ 2019 report, “The Skilled Technical Workforce,” ACS has been working to connect skilled workers like you with opportunities in the chemistry enterprise to close this gap. In addition to strategic partnerships with companies, two-year colleges, and other institutions to secure mentorship, internship, grants, and other job opportunities, ACS members in the ACS Committee on Technician Affairs (CTA) are volunteering their time to help Chemical Technical Professionals (CTPs) like you grow their careers and CTP stakeholders better support their career journeys.

CTPs Michelle Rivard of Dow and Matthew Russell of Corteva Agrisciences will share how their career journeys were supported by ACS and lessons learned along the way. Erin Dotlich, Eli Lilly and Company, will discuss the CTA’s many tools and resources available from both the Committee and ACS's broader strategic initiative so you can begin growing your career and succeed as a Chemical Technical Professional.
