"Any geeks want to set up a website and do a social marketing campaign to get real data on unemployed/underemployed pharma-biotech chemists? If the ACS cannot get their act together, maybe it's time someone else did??"If you believe the ACS member survey, the unemployment rate for chemists for 2009 is 3.8%. Do you believe that? I gotta say, I'm skeptical.
Would you like to find out otherwise? I would like to do a web survey on SurveyMonkey.com, where I could invite all chemists (regardless of ACS membership) to tell me their employment/unemployment status.
Problem is, an unlimited survey on SurveyMonkey is $200/year. While I'm willing to support a good portion of the cost, it would be nice to have some help. So, would you be willing to pitch in? Pledge your support in the comments and if I can get pledges for over 40% of the cost of the survey, we'll do this thing. What do you think?
