Setting Your Course for the Future – Making the Most of your Chemical Engineering degree


Faced with limitless opportunities, chemical engineers have numerous jobs and career paths to pursue.  The so called war for talent does exist for ChemE’s.  Which jobs lead to rewarding careers, do I want to manage molecules or people, or which opportunity will give me a chance to make a difference in society?    What if you find yourself on the other end of the spectrum not really sure what you want to do when you “grow up”?  Join Adam Forbes, global director of staffing from Honeywell Performance Materials and Technologies for a talk and discussion about opportunities and challenges for chemical engineers, careers options to consider, and how to create a meaningful career path that is suited for what matters most to you.
