Career Opportunities


Two informative articles based on 2013 salaries and employment and on the growth of chemistry jobs in 2014 can both be found in Chemical and Engineering News. The aforementioned articles are from a weekly news source of our professional organization The American Chemical Society. You will find jobs listed in both places as well as a variety of information on chemistry applications and recent developments in chemical research.

Successful job searching requires the attainment of skills that extend those that you acquire in formal coursework. Students are strongly encouraged to pursue research opportunities/internships with the faculty in our Department. The Career Management Center also offers training in a variety of job-seeking skills which will help the interested student in obtaining that first job.
