Chemistry Career Services offers assistance to both undergraduate and graduate students in the department in the following areas:

  • Coordinating on-campus recruiting for companies that employ chemists. Interviews are held in the Chemistry Building during the fall and spring semesters. To participate in on-campus chemistry recruiting, students must set up an account in Handshake. Learn more about on-campus recruiting.
  • Collecting information about summer internships and opportunities in industry and academia. January and February are a great time to apply for summer internships.

The Job Resource is another place to find job postings from employers throughout the U.S.


Chemistry Career Services helps employers seeking chemistry candidates by connecting employers with student job-seekers.
