The University of Stellenbosch Chemistry Department, represented by AlchemUS, recently invited TOMA-Now for an inspiring share session on the road from a technical qualification to business and the business of sustainability.
The presentation covered traditional technical career paths with an emphasis on adding value through innovation & process optimisation. It also focused on being open to new opportunities, being willing to step out of traditional career paths & your comfort zone. The power of networking was intensively reflected on – a skill that’s often over-looked when it comes to technical development. Of particular relevance was a focus on sustainability and how it’s sometimes perceived to be mutually exclusive to working in the chemical industry. We hope that our thoughts, ideas and sharing helped to motivate and inspire the future chemists of AlchemUS!
