I graduated in May, with a BS in Chemical Engineering....the problem is that I am still unemployed. Do any of your fellow hoosiers have any good connections? I promise to spend my first paycheck at the gunstore!

Have you tried BP there in Whiting? I'm sure you're very familiar with distillation & fractionation.

Praxair and their smaller industrial coatings division are both in Indy.

Lilly Industries, Not related to eli Lilly. they do industrial coatings. Goofy place, but you need a job.

Reily Chemical. Another interesting place

Check out Heritage Environmental Group. All of their companies have grown, one division does haz mat stuff all over the US.

I am not sure how much is left here at Dow Chemical. Bug killer group. People claim the glowing ghosts of the dead test animals can be seen at night. (joke)
