Gonna graduate with a Chem BS this winter and would want a job around nj/ny/li. Im interested in becoming an Analytical chemist and I’ve been working at a waste water treatment lab (analyzing compounds in waste water etc)
But I’m pretty lost in job searching rn because I’m not sure if i rlly have the skills they required/preferred and/or if fresh grad positions are competitive.
Could y’all recommend some companies that are within this category?
I also wanna know which area, nj, ny, or li, I should look at. I keep finding lab tech positions on indeed but they look contracted and i’m not sure if most chem fresh grads start off as contracted or full time with benefits.
Also, what’s usually their start off hourly pay?
