Chemists work everywhere! Over the years, I interviewed for jobs ranging from forensic chemist at the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to research professor at Drexel University. As PhDs, we have mastered the art of learning. As a result of completing an ultra-specific dissertation, one of our best talents becomes our capability to learn. One of my favorite quotations from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia comes from the character Charlie Kelly as portrayed by Charlie Day. He says, “Oh, get a job? Just get a job? Why don’t I strap on my job helmet and squeeze down into a job cannon and fire off into job land, where jobs grow on little jobbies?!” (Season 3, “The Gang Sells Out”).
