Chemistry Overview 

Profiles of Chemists are available on this site to provide insight into the activities, educational preparation, and daily challenges of individuals working in the field of Chemistry.  Profiles include students, those just starting their career, and those who have been working for decades.  They cover a variety of career paths and educational backgrounds.  All offer PDF files profiling the individual and including an interview.  While these are useful tools for glimpsing into the working lives of chemists, it may also be helpful to network with professionals who can provide even more input, or answer your specific questions.  Bear in mind that these profiles are simply snapshots of chemists at one point in their career.  It is likely that these people have moved on to other jobs, perhaps expanded their education, or made other changes since the profile was created.  These individuals are not available for individual contact, but have provided candid descriptions of their education, work experiences, and career paths.  You may select a profile by name, job function, company, or geography.
