I was hired as a chemist out of college. I got my bachelors in biology and a minor in chemistry,

I had not a clue about the nature of the work. All i know is that they offered me a great salary and i was willing to learn whatever they were goign to throw at me.

associate chemist positions give anyone out of college a fantastic oppurtunity to make alot of money and some corperations such as the one i work for even offer to pay you to advance y our education.

I also have a bs in biology with a chem minor. However, after graduation I went into sales and have not used my degree in 6 yrs. I am looking to get back into something that will utilize my degree. Do you think it would be possible for me to start over as a chemist? If so, what companies would be a good place to look? Thanks.
