1. Helping chemists find jobs in a tough market. 2. Towards a quantitative understanding of the quality of the chemistry job market.
Are we all that obvious? My PI and I would get into "heated discussions" all the time!
Thanks for advice ;-) (Scorpio)
Hee. A couple of months ago, we had some fun with science horoscopes on twitter. It's funny how similar they looked to these. Some things are just universal, I guess.P.S. I'm a Leo, not a Libra...
as an aries, why yes, I am preparing for plan B in science.
Ha! I actually do have group meeting today, but since I'm presenting I don't get to challenge anyone's mechanism. I'm not the golden child either, it's hard to tell if there is one because my PI treats us all with respect (very odd feeling compared to my grad PI).
Chemjobber, when are you going to post a photoshopped misfortune cookie for organic chemists? Magic Eightball?
A1:45p:Would you like me to? I had thought of the fortune cookie...
Chemjobber: Sure! The fortune cookie would be great, or perhaps you can test your programming skills and design an app of the magic chemistry eightball. Or maybe lampoon generic inspirational office art...they're so stupid!
I can already see some of the fortunes:"It needs another column. Yes, that compound""Saturday is a great day to work""You did not grow crystals. Try again""Tread softly past your boss's office"
