ACS webinar focuses on how to negotiate salary or pay for chemistry professionals

May 20, 2010

WASHINGTON, May 20, 2010 -- News media and others interested in the chemical sciences are invited to join the next in a series of American Chemical Society (ACS) Webinars™, focusing on strategies for negotiating pay or salaries for chemistry professionals.

Scheduled for Thursday, May 27, 2 - 3 p.m. EDT, the free ACS Webinar™ will feature Meredith Dow, Senior Partner with PROVEN, a scientific staffing and consulting firm, speaking on "Knowing Your Worth: Strategies to Negotiate for Salary or Pay for Chemical Professionals."

ACS Webinars™ connect you with subject experts and global thought leaders in chemical sciences, management and business to address current topics of interest to scientific and engineering professionals. Each webinar includes a short presentation followed by a Q & A session.

News media and scientists can tune into the conference without charge, but must register in advance.

Dow's topics will include:Dow has 13 years experience in the life sciences staffing industry, and before joining PROVEN, she opened and managed the scientific branch for a $1 billion staffing company. She developed the San Diego branch into that company's most successful scientific branch for nine of the 10 years that she was with the company. She holds a B.S. degree in zoology with an emphasis on animal behavior from the University of California, Davis. She has more than four years of hands-on experience in the biotechnology industry, specifically in immunoassay development. Dow is an active member of the Southern California Biotechnology Council's Advisory Committee and the Mesa College Chemistry Technician Program Advisory Committee; sits on the ACS Small Business Advisory Board and has served on the Board of Directors for the San Diego branch of the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science for 10 years. She is leading the development of the Life Sciences Practice for PROVEN.
