  • After completing M.Sc organic chemistry chances of getting good posts in Pharmaceutical industry and chemical industry. They will be preferred as production chemists and Quality chemists. As they obtain experience the chances for them to go for higher positions especially in private industries are very high. The experience is more important than any additional certifications or diplomas. Anna University is offering one or two diplomas regarding manufacturing engineering and laboratory management. If somebody is interested may try for these diplomas. But trying strongly for a good job and having a start of a career is the best option. Simultaneously he can try for improving the qualification. If he is interested in teaching job he can better go for M.Phil programme.

  • A post - graduate degree in Chemistry with Organic - chemistry as a special paper has always remained in demand in the various - industries such as Pharmaceutical, Rubber, Paint, Fertiliser - industries. Apart from this, promising candidates with this qualification can have assignment in the Central - government jobs where they are designated as Research - chemist or Reasearch - scientist. There is always scope for the brilliant aspirants to enjoy faster promotion in both private/ central - government jobs.
    Additional diplomas such as Leather - technology, Rubber or Polymer technology would not enhance employability for such aspirants since these chapter are covered in their post - graduate stage.
    However, a M.Tech degree in Chemical - engineering would certainly enhance the job - prospects because of detailed studies of Polymer, Rubber, Paint, Fertiliser or Pharmaceutical - products. The only demerit behind such a step is the additional time consumption which could have been utilised with a gainful employment.
    Hence it would be better to start a job in one's relevant area with some MNC companies or with the engagement in a central - government job.
    With the exposure of sufficient experience, their job - prospects and emoluments would increase significantly.
