Available: Entry Level Chemical Engineer
Quote | Reply
I am a recent swimmer and graduate from the University of Kentucky with a BS in Chemical Engineering and recently earned my triathlon pro card. I am looking for an entry-level chemical engineering position in virtually any area of the field. I am not restricted geographically.

I have strong interpersonal skills and I know how to work well within a team/small group-based structure. I graduated with strong GPA and have a deep understanding of concepts in the field, especially in design, optimization, and heat/mass transfer. I also have excellent time management skills, since I've had to balance a tremendous training loads with a most rigorous academic curriculum. In the same vein, I do not have much real-world experience in the field due to athletics (with the exception of some University-funded research), but I am a quick learner and extremely adaptable. Obviously, I would love to locate someplace with an excellent triathlon training environment, since I would love to continue training and racing at a high level.

Below is my resume. Please contact me if you are interested in discussing employment.
