Riyadh, Saudi Arabia: SABIC is hiring, with 3 positions posted.

ACS Career Fair watch: Still just 6 positions.

Oh, Kelly: Call center positions? Seriously, Kelly?


  1. Technical advisor sounds intriguing, but working full time and going to law school does not.

    1. Six figures don't come easy...

    2. Actually that sounds like an amazing opportunity. I just wonder if it's really open to anyone or another Harvard- or Columbia-only need apply.

  2. Hey Chemjobber, if you take a look on BASF's actual jobs site http://jobs.basf.us you will see there are HUNDREDS of openings in the United States of all levels from High-School up to PhD level upper management in a wide variety of fields.
