Anyone help..
 
I just came to the US with Green Card a week ago.

I am trying to explore on possibilities of finding a job in the US
with my education background.

I do not have a good work experience, so I am willing to work chemical
labs or willing take any chemistry related entry level position.

I am in Dallas, TX at this time, but willing to relocate if I have
to.

Can anyone tell me what would be the best way to start searching for
jobs?

Is anyone ware of any designation in chemistry field that I can earn
by taking exams so my credentials would look better? If you are,
please let me know where I can contact so I can start working on it.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Suman

There are a few fields of chemistry that require accreditation. One is
clinical chemistry. Another is forensic chemistry, in police labs. Taking
exams isn't enough for either; they require specific training.

Otherwise, the extent and quality of your college education matters. You
should have a transcript of your college record. Prepare a resume for
answering job ads. The resume should be a single page. It doesn't have to
tell everything about you - just an outline of your background, specifically
education, experience, and goals.

If you have access to a technical library, look at the job listings at the
back of each week's Chemical and Engineering News. You can also visit a new

Thanks very much for your prompt response. I appreciate your
information and your advice.

You talk about training to get the designations... Can you please
tell me how I can get these trainings? Do you have any web URLs for
browse through?

Once again, Thanks!

I'd say oyu might want to think about goign to school for a degree
program, say a Master's degree but instaed of chemistry, may be do
somehtign related to Biotechnology? I don't know the job market for
Biotech too well; I am just saying this to let you know that job
prospect in chemistry don't seem to be very good.

I think these training and designations are additonal features you
must get after a degree program.

You have stated clearly what exactly was your degree and experience.

You might even want to think about Pahrmacy program, say master's
level. Not that i know for sure that Pharnacy is good but just to let
you know that chemistry is bad news.

I don't know about pharmacy program but chemistry program usually
offers grauadte assistantship, i.e free tuition and expense. I ntoiced
that some people used their credit cards (which is easy to get once
you are a grad student; these day even as a student at 2 year college)
to finance their education. With grad assitantship, you won't even
have to use your cr4dit cards that much if you are extremely thrifty.



I say, you check about those universities in Dallas as well as Houston
to look at all chemsitry related program to understand about programs
and trainging, etc.

go to American Chemical Society page and browse around. Might learn
terminology to search for jobs related to chemistry.
