Chemistry graduates all over the world are trained for academic and industrial research; however, science extends far beyond the lab bench. This symposium will present various alternatives to research careers to prepare early career chemists to enter today’s competitive and varied job market. We will hear from influential scientists who have carved out successful career paths outside of the lab in fields such as finance, advocacy, patent law, and communications. This session will be followed by a panel discussion featuring all of our speakers.
