Daily Pump Trap: 11/7/13 edition

Good morning! Between November 5 and November 6, there 24 new positions posted to the C&EN Jobs website. Of these, 12 (50%) were academically connected and 9 (38%) were from Kelly Scientific Resources.

Camden, SC: Invista is a carpet manufacturer; they've been steadily hiring chemists and engineers from C&EN Jobs for 2-3 years now. They're looking for a B.S./M.S. chemist who wants to be a chemistry lab manager (looks to be QC-ish) and a chemical hygiene officer (glamorous!)

A broader look: Monster, Careerbuilder, Indeed and show (respectively) 189, 724, 2482 and 11 positions for the search term "chemist." LinkedIn shows 143 positions for the job title "chemist", with 7 for "research chemist", 5 for "organic chemist", 19 for "analytical chemist" and 0 for "medicinal chemist."

什么?: Why would a DNA sequencing company (Mountain View, CA) need a help desk operator that's fluent in Mandarin?
