Job Fair · Open up job opportunities to prospective candidates · Undergraduate Student · Graduate Student
Field Trip · Fields Trips to local chemical industries · High school Students · Undergraduate Students · Graduate StudentsB. Individual/Small Group Mentorship:
• For individuals and small groups, we hope to divide the interested students into different categories based on their education level (high school/undergraduate) and their career goals (further education/job). We would ask every individual student of their specific interests/needs (i.e. advice with college selection, job search, or scholarship opportunities). Likewise, we would enquire our mentor volunteers of their specific interests in helping our mentees. • We would then pair individuals with appropriate mentors based on their mutual interests, and allow them meet with each other at an ACS-Columbus event. They can then communicate through email, and exchange information.
