Advancement Prospects

For food technologists with a bachelor's degree, there are two general paths to advancement, depending on whether they work in production or in research. They may begin as assistant quality-assurance chemists or assistant production managers and, with experience, move up to more responsible management positions such as plant director. Some technologists may start as junior food chemists in the research and development laboratory of a food company and advance to section head or another research management position.
