Once again we see that the future continues to be unpredictable! Despite the current economic downturn, technology transformations in the energy and chemicals sectors continue at a rapid pace to address climate change and the environment, and realize opportunities provided by shale gas and tight oil, lower cost solar and wind power, and enhanced capabilities in biological and materials sciences. AIChE can provide key opportunities for learning and networking to sustain your career, and your career as a chemical engineer offers many opportunities for you to contribute to important societal needs, while also earning a living. This presentation will give perspectives on career management from early career through the critical mid-career phase, and will end with an open discussion of how AIChE can better help serve your needs for career continuity and service.
