The chemical industry provides employment opportunities for people with different experience and education levels. The training and promotion of the three major occupations are different.

 

Occupation of production. Production workers tend to receive on-the-job training, or receive training at elementary or community colleges. Primary production workers may start as laborers or other lower-skilled jobs in the chemical manufacturers, and with experience and training, they will be promoted to higher-paying positions that require higher skills or assume greater responsibilities in the chemical companies. It is possible to make significant progress even in a profession. For example, machine operators and bidders may go through several levels of responsibility until they become the highest paid operators. The advancement of the chemical production profession usually requires the mastery of advanced skills, which are usually obtained through a combination of on-the-job training and formal training provided by the owner of chemical companies. Some workers are promoted to management positions.

 

Professional and related occupations. Most research and development jobs require a lot of technical education, at least a bachelor's degree to a doctorate degree. However, a person with a 2-year associate degree may have very few opportunities as a laboratory technician or assistant. Developing a new product or obtaining a patent will increase salary and prestige, but to a certain extent, progress may require a shift from research and development to management. Researchers are usually familiar with the company's goals and production methods, coupled with university education, equipped them with many tools necessary for management positions.

 

Management, business and finance careers. Management jobs usually require a 4-year university degree, although some may only require a 2-year technical degree. Despite fierce competition, managers can be promoted to higher-level positions without additional formal training outside of work. Generally speaking, promotion to the top management depends on a person's experience and ability to prove responsibility in several functional areas. In large multinational companies, international experience is very important for career development. In addition, the adjustment of the industrial structure has led to a reduction in management and increased competition for promotion.

 

Office and administrative support occupations. Office and administrative support staff often receive on-the-job training or participate in some higher education courses. Opportunities for office and administrative support staff are usually limited, but with the accumulation of time and experience, you can become the supervisor of other office support staff.
