What careers should I look into if I'm interested in chemistry especially forensic chemistry?
I've been interested in chemistry since I was a little kid because it gives me insight as to how the world really works on the molecular level. I like forensic because I get to solve challenging problems. Science and math are my best subjects at school and I enjoy tasks that require critical thinking. I want to be challenged and my work to make a positive impact.
Good for you!
I found this link and thought it would be helpful as it explains a little about the positions and even income:
I am biased of course and would love to see more bright minds in identifying and developing treatments for some of the illnesses that we struggle with in society today. As an example there is s real crisis brewing in the treatment of bacterial infections. We have not been the best stewards of antibiotic use over the years and find ourselves needing novel antimicrobials as the bugs get "smarter".
Best of luck!

There are many careers that pertain to chemistry but these four go with forensic chemistry as they focus on anything that has to do with chemistry + forensic meaning : its chemistry used to solve criminal cases or anything that has to do with courts of law
