Industrial Chemicals Workers
Most of the equipment in the industrial chemicals industry is now automated and computer controlled. Because of the complex equipment used, employers prefer to hire workers with at least a high school diploma. Knowledge of basic mathematics, science, and computer skills is essential for those seeking employment in this field. Machine shop experience is also useful. A background in chemistry may prove helpful to understand materials, reactions, and processes. Experience with lab ware may be beneficial as well.
