Before I ask my question, let me first introduce myself. My name is Andrew Gross, I am a recent graduate of Binghamton University (F06) with a B.S. in Biochemistry. Everything was great in my world until the economic crisis. I was on top of the world doing R&D for a huge company. Being the resourceful person I am, nothing ever got that bad. I work a dirty job now, but it puts food on my table, I have actually been content with this job until recently. What started the series of events that brought me to this email was actually a trip to Binghamton to speak with my favorite professor about my future and just science in general, in summary, I just needed to have an intellectual conversation and was willing to drive the 8 hours round trip to do it. This trip inspired me to join ACS so I could belong to a community of intellectuals and when I was still in college this professor took me to an ACS meeting which was the most incredible experience of my life. Then an accident occurred on my job and I became to scared to work, even though I do it anyway. You see, I drive a truck right now, and even though the accident wasn't my fault and no one was injured, I became horrified that I could, potentially seriously hurt someone after seeing what my "office" did to the gigantic Buick.. My fault or not, that would haunt me forever. The final piece of the puzzle came two days ago when I saw a job posting. This job not only involved chemistry (and science in general), but also my other job of firefighting. It was an environmental/chemical safety position which for some reason requested fire protection skills. So for my question, I ask of many of you, if you know of any similar positions out there?. I joined this division because it sounded interesting to me, and now it seems that the jobs I find interesting are in this field. Ultimately I am asking everyone for general guidance. Please help. If this email breaks any rules of the list serv, I apologize now. Like I said I am new, just let me know if I'm not supposed to make requests like this. Advanced Thank You, Andrew Gross.
