ACS newsletters, you can do better

Dewitos? Are you kidding me?

If you're asking me to unsubscribe, this is a not-so-subtle way of making it happen.

  4. Hi CJ. Most of your posts are very educational but occasionally you publish nonsense like this that makes me want to unbookmark your website.

    As Anon points out, flavor chemistry is a real, legitimate business with real, legitimate chemists. As your website is dedicated to helping chemists find traditional and nontraditional career paths, a bit less cynicism would be appreciated.

    1. "flavor chemistry is a real, legitimate business with real, legitimate chemists."

      I agree 100%. And the article had no flavor chemistry content that I'm aware of. If you think I'm wrong, I'm happy to listen.

      When you think I publish nonsense, please feel free to e-mail me -- I am more than happy to listen: chemjobber@gmail.com

    2. Look at the big brain on Anon0916!!!

      Flavor Chem and Food/Beverage Science seem like the long lost crazy uncle of chemistry.
      And those jobs are insanely difficult to break in to as a MS/PhD chemist.

      Hence the sarcasm in my prior post;
      Most of us who slogged through grad school will have forgotten that Flavors are based in althochdeutschechemie

      I'd say the same if it were a textile chemistry position.
      How many people picked up the Color Index in grad school?

  5. I hope there's a pumpkin spice version for the holidays.
    Their next project should be to make Dr. Pepper flavored Doritos.
    What a time to be alive.
