1. HELPING CHEMISTS FIND JOBS IN A TOUGH MARKET. 2. TOWARDS A QUANTITATIVE UNDERSTANDING OF THE QUALITY OF THE CHEMISTRY JOB MARKET.

I used to always laugh at the "Excel skills" type requirements until I had a contract technician hired into help me that didn't even know how to use a mouse. My supervisor (who hired him strictly on the basis of his resume - no interview!) told me to have him play Solitaire to learn how to use it.ReplyDelete
We canned him the next day and I insisted on meeting ALL my help in person from then on.
