In this issue, Solvay’s CTO, Nicolas Cudré-Mauroux, shares some terrific advice for early career chemists working in industry, or for those still thinking about whether to pursue employment opportunities in industry. I’ll let Nicolas speak for himself, but you’ll see that he values chemists whose interests and knowledge extend beyond the fundamental mechanisms of chemistry. To see which areas he is focused on, be sure to read his Boss Talk below.
This issue features more, of course: Learn how to leverage your Ph.D. to maximize your career opportunities, how to be a better listener, and for those of you who are entrepreneur-oriented, enjoy the profile of Karen Calvinho, the CTO for RenewCO2.
She’ll tell you the biggest challenge she encountered as she moved from academia to entrepreneur.
Finally, in order to spend time with friends and family, ACS Industry Matters won’t publish on Thanksgiving, November 28. We hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. See you again on Thursday, December 5.
