"I used to do recruiting for Hercules (among my other duties). It took a lot of time to travel to campuses and talk to students and employment candidates. It is good to know that it is now possible to have an electronic booth at this virtual career fair and interview candidates by video or audio. I know the graduate students and the younger chemists today are more savvy about electronic communication, and they may like this new way to interview. I think this may be particularly useful for smaller businesses. This is a valuable new way of recruiting that saves time and money."

Councilor, Polymer Chemistry Division
