Hi Daniel O. Thanks so much for your question. I see that you posted this question a little while ago so I hope my answer to you (or others who may read this response) is still helpful.

It so happens that when I was in college, my roommate was a ChemE (chemical engineering) major. I was focused on my Systems Engineering degree so although what I share here is a bit second hand, I have some knowledge that I hope is helpful.

The foundation gained by having an engineering degree, in general, is boundless. Specifically for chemical engineering, there are many options in terms of location and type of work. There are options to carry out research in university programs and/or labs. There are also options to work in the corporate space for industries like oil/gas, pharmaceuticals, and/or home products like plastics, cleaning products...the options really are limitless in my view.

Given such a wide array, and to help narrow down the options, does require some work on the part of the person looking for the job. That work includes doing the research in job types, job locations, job expectations (which can be uncovered by talking to or reading about people who have these types of job), salaries, etc.

Good Luck!
