Date:9/27/2010

PRINCETON, N.J., Sept. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Chemical Society, Informex, and Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN) announced today that they are to partner in hosting the 'ACS Careers Virtual Career Fair in conjunction with Informex and C&EN' a completely virtual event, to be held November 2 -3, 2010. The American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society, chose to work with Informex, the leading meeting place for buyers and sellers of high-value chemistry, and C&EN, the ACS' flagship publication, to present an opportunity rich event for the chemical industry. The virtual career fair will utilize an online platform that will host an exhibition floor with booths for recruiters and companies looking to engage candidates, an auditorium to view career themed webcasts and a networking lounge where the chemical industry can connect.

Each day of the two day event will focus on a career related theme. The first day will center on "Outlook for Chemical, Pharma and Biotech Industries" while the second day will focus more generally on "Career Development."  The career fair will begin at 9:00am EST on both mornings with a keynote session, followed by four additional webinars throughout the day. Continuously from 9:00am through 6:00pm the event show floor will be open for candidates to visit with recruiters and corporate human resources representatives, and the networking lounge will be open all day for informal chats as well as scheduled topic discussions. UBM Studios, a leader in virtual events and virtual business solutions, will provide the virtual interface for the event.

Jennifer Jessup, Informex/UBM Global Brand Director, commented, "Informex has a strong history in both the fine and specialty chemical markets and through our combined efforts with the American Chemical Society the virtual career fair will connect a huge array of corporate chemical industries and a large pool of recruiters and job seekers. With the struggles all job seekers are facing in a slowly recovering economy, we decided this virtual career fair would be the best way for us to host both educational and networking opportunities."

Additionally, during the first week in November, C&EN will be publishing its annual Employment Outlook edition of the publication. The content of this edition of the leading scientific publication serving the chemical, life sciences, and laboratory world will closely tie in with the 'ACS Careers' Virtual Career Fair in conjunction with Informex and C&EN' in both webinars and in scheduled chat session in the networking lounge. On the first morning of the event, the keynote webinar will discuss C&EN's finding on employment trends and developments in the chemical, pharma and biotech industries.

"By adding a virtual event edition to our already successful physical ACS Career Fairs, which will take place in Boston, MA on August 22-26, 2010 and Anaheim, CA on March 27-31, 2011, we are able to provide employment opportunities to a wider and more diverse audience," stated  David Harwell, Assistant Director of ACS Careers. "The ACS is thrilled to be working with Informex and C&EN on the inaugural ACS Careers Virtual Career Fair. The virtual career fair will operate with innovative technology to connect a large community of students and business professionals to corporate exhibitors and recruiters in a virtual exhibition hall."

The 'ACS Careers Virtual Career Fair in conjunction with Informex and C&EN' will include many of the features that one would expect to find at a traditional physical event, including:

  • Exhibit Halls complete with interactive exhibitor booths and staff
  • An Auditorium hosting live, scheduled presentations
  • A Resource Center featuring white papers, podcasts and informative content
