• Business/Project Management as Minor- A science degree is coveted by many employers across a wide range of areas along with the business management combination so I would suggest taking any management subject as minor would help. Personally I wound not recommend HR as minor because basis my experience I think Chemistry and HR both has a parallel line of career and cannot go hand in hand.
• Analytical chemist
• Food technologist
• Quality control scientist etc
Divya.S. recommends the following next steps:
In my half-a-century career endeavor, I have seen many members of technical teams go stuck at the technical level and could not advance to management because they lack management skill. A minor in HR management or any general business management will help you in your future career endeavor.
On the other hand, one may have multiple interests in many areas, but it is important to keep in mind that it is imperative to stay focus and concentrate in one hard science discipline. You need to first graduate with a bachelor’s degree and move on fast.
