"Science Societies: A Source Of Leads For The Job Hunter" The Scientist, Dec. 11, 1989, page 20) includes an observation containing a quotation, both presenting an incorrect impression about the Placement Services of the Federation of American

Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) and the Society for Neuroscience (SN). I refer to this: ". . . they're `not very useful for people who want to work for large companies, like Abbott Labs, Merck, and Du Pont . . .' because few turn to science-society services as a source of candidates." Actually, those three companies sent an aggregate of 58 individuals to interview candidates during Placement Service operations at the 1988 and 1989 annual meetings of FASEB and SN. Just at the 1989 FASEB annual meeting, those three and 18 similar companies participated, sending 50 interviewers. The direct-dial telephone number for FASEB and SN Placement Services is (301) 530-7020.
