It's pretty darn exciting--I've been invited to give a seminar at a SLAC with a strong chemistry program, by somebody I don't even know yet! I'm really looking forward to it--my undergrad degree is from a really similar institution and I value that kind of education. They've encouraged me to bring recruitment materials, which I will definitely be doing. Describing my work to undergraduates and connecting it to relevant things they have been learning is one of my favorite types of communication, so it will really be a fun talk to give.
I did a little happy dance when I got the email. Hopefully it means my lab webpage is working its magic, if people have taken a look at what we're doing and have been getting interested!
