C&EN layoffs

Filed under: Chemistry Jobs — Tags: — sankirnam @ 11:49 am

I heard about these through Chemjobber; he has written a moving piece on this sad state of affairs.

As someone who is frantically applying for jobs and trying to get his foot in the door in the chemical industry, these layoffs do affect me. Even if I do not know the laid-off employees personally, the positions they once had are usually eliminated completely, never to be refilled. This drastic downsizing of jobs in a lot of companies in the formerly active chemical sector is something that I feel needs to be addressed by government intervention or a political lobby in the interest of chemists.
