#ACSIndy Career Fair: 99 positions, 523 job seekers

Credit: @CountTheBricks
The ACS Indianapolis National Meeting has the following stats, thanks to our multiple photographers, @CountTheBricks, @rgcjk and @xtalca:

Employers: 29
Job seekers: 523
Positions available: 99
Recruiters Row: 13

That's a ratio of 5.28:1 (job seekers to position), which is slightly worse than #ACSNola at 5:1, but better than Fall 2012 (Philadelphia), 5.71:1 and Spring 2012 (San Diego), 8.76:1.

  2. Woo hoo! ACS decided to splurge on a new marker for the ghetto dry-erase board!

    Good luck to all of the job seekers!

    @CJ: Have you read C&EN, 2013, 91(25), 57? With the US job market for chemists still far from spectacular, do you think that there might be a backlash against Canadian MS-level chemists taking US-based jobs? (Admittedly I am asking this in jest...recently re-watched the "South Park Movie".)
