Ever wonder if you major in chemistry, would you get a job? Well, there are many jobs that require a good knowledge of chemistry in order to be successful. There are many types of jobs out there that require the use of some basic chemistry. Four examples of jobs that require the use of chemistry are cooking, biotechnology, forensics, and artifact preservers. These are only some of the many jobs that require chemistry as a basis of the job.

First of all, there is the job that everyone admires and many people pay extreme amounts of money for if they are good enough. This job is one in the subject of culinary arts.
