Odds and sods

  • Congrats to Angel Cabrera, for a truly gutsy Masters win. 
  • Stats from the recent ACS meeting in Salt Lake City: 32 employers, 524 applicants (does that seem low to anyone?) and 176 positions. Not a terrible set of odds, but certainly not great. Thanks to Chemjobber source T. for the numbers. 
  • Folks seem to say that the economy is picking back up a little -- it'll be interesting to know if that'll be the same for the chemistry job market. I guess folks at Pfizer are expecting a second round of cuts, having to do with Wyeth. Between Merck/Schering-Plough and Pfizer/Wyeth, I have a funny feeling that there will be a lot of out-of-work chemists. Let's hope I'm wrong.
