DuPont will be hosting a one-day seminar series and oral presentation at the 2019 NOBCChE National Conference on November 18, 2019 in St. Louis, MO. The theme of this year’s sponsored conference session will be “Your Science in 2035”. Participants will give an oral presentation on their research, competing to win $1000 and a guaranteed interview with a DuPont recruiter. Each participant will be invited to an all-expense paid dinner on the evening of the competition for an opportunity to network with DuPont recruiters and learn more about life in industry.
