Dr. Lisa Balbes, ACS Career Consultant (Balbes Consultants LLC)

We all know the Internet and information technology have changed the way we do business. But how have they changed the way we find business, jobs, or even completely new careers? New technological tools such as blogs, social networking sites, wikis, telephone and video conferencing provide a wealth of information - both for you and about you. This presentation will focus on tools and techniques of particular use to chemical professionals, and how they can be used for both active and passive career development.
