Find your career path in chemistry

The Royal Society of Chemistry empowers its members to make a real impact in the chemical sciences, equipping them with the tools they need, but it’s their hard work, passion and dedication that makes the difference. Former chemical science student Nessa Carson is a prime example of this. Nessa Carson joined the RSC when she was still in high school. Being an early career chemical scientist, Nessa thinks the most valuable part of her membership is the careers support. “I have spoken to just about everyone in the Careers and Professional Development team and they really know what they’re talking about. Whenever I’m thinking about making a career decision, they are one of the first groups I turn to for advice and support,” she says.

When you become a member of the RSC, you will have full support at every stage of your career — not to mention you’ll be connected with chemical scientists from all over the world. Having this kind of access gives you not only the knowledge you need to thrive but also the tools and resources required to pave a future in chemistry, staying at the forefront of a thriving profession.
