Where are the jobs? Which places have the most chemist opportunities?
NOt on the rise!!! Declining like everything else. These jobs are now 30K yearly which is low for a 4 year chemistry degree.
Networking is the only thing that is working. When you see more government jobs then private sector..... the field is in trouble.
Also, if you are over 45 plan on being out of work for a year or more.
I have been looking for 9 months and still NOTHING 18 years experience as an analytical chemist!
