While the ACS Career Services is the best there is, it is important to look for ways to expand your network. Finding a position is a bit like a lottery the more opportunities you pursue the better your chances for success. This is to alert you to aids offered by other technical societies, including Sigma Xi, AAAS, AICHE, The Electrochemical Society, Society of Electroanalytical Chemists (SEAC), Scientific American to name some of them. Recently AAAS introduced Science Careers (CTSciNet and MySciNet) which includes a resume tool, automated search, a monthly news letter, a discussion forum and articles on career opportunities.
