DearWelcome to CareerGuideWe are more than happy to help you choose the right career path.Great to see you here. Great! You do think differently and I like to talk to people who think different. Chemical field is really lucrative and offers handsome salary packages. But you should know yourself before going into such a conclusion. There are an array of psychometric assessment tools to know your personality, skill set, aptitude and attitude. You can take one of them and know yourself. Once you know yourself it is easy to polish your advantages to suit to the desired career path. In my opinion, career is life, lifestyle, self satisfaction and self actualization. Salary is secondary and passion comes primary. Give primary the passion.You can become a chemical technician just with a degree in science field especially Chemistry and Bio Chemistry. Also pharmacy courses like B Pharm gives you opportunity. In the initial stages, the job may not be that lucrative but when you start your research and prove yourself, you will see the difference. Hope this answers your query.Good luck.Dr. K V anand
