Reviews

The chapter 'Making yourself employable' is illustrated with excellent examples that students can relate to. It doesn't just focus on careers in the chemical sciences, and in reality is sound advice for graduate jobseekers from any discipline. * Paul Duckmanton, Education in Chemistry, March 2016 * Much of the sound advice from the previous incarnation still exists, but there has been a logical restructure to some chapters. There are now even more opportunities for students to test their skills with the 'Try this' case studies, allowing the reader to work through challenging scenarios. * Paul Duckmanton, Education in Chemistry, March 2016 * This update only adds to what was already an incredibly helpful book; it should be recommended reading for all chemistry undergraduates. * Paul Duckmanton, Education in Chemistry, March 2016 *
