help for Phd in chemistry to start as cosmetic scientist

Hello everyone,

this is the first time I write a post here. I am recent phd graduate in chemistry. I fell in love with cosmetic science back in undergraduate school. I have been applying for positions in cosmetic industry for a while. But I did not have much luck. Simply put I heard nothing from companies. I know I do not have much experience in industry. Could any of you provide any advice on that? I really appreciate your suggestions and help.

    Have you got involved with your local Society of Cosmetic Chemists chapter?  Where are you located?
  • Hi Perry,
    thank you for your reply. I am currently located in CT. And I know there are various companies around this area, including New York. I was looking through the society of cosmetic chemists in CT. But I did not find any social events updated on the webpage. I want to enroll in this professional cosmetic society. Could you please provide advice? Thank you so much.

    Hello
    It looks like they have an event coming up on September 20 then another on October 10. http://www.ctscc.org/events/

    The NYSCC is also very active. https://nyscc.org/

    My suggestion would be to attend one of these events and meet some people involved. You may even consider doing some volunteer work for the chapter. You can probably join as a student member for your first year. 
  • Hi Perry,
    just checked on CT chapter of SCC. I saw updated events coming up.
