Process and chemical Engineer Graduate 

This is a challenging discipline because you need to get into a client role and most of these clients do have Graduate programs so if you miss out the best way to secure work is to establish more experience and then move into a Graduate program later.

From my experience, I have gained graduate roles in lesser-known companies which led them to medium-sized companies and then larger still. It's very important to realise this discipline in particular needs to be focused and always engaging the marketplace.

There is always more work than you realise but most graduates are fixated on graduate programs and they are in high demand and in very low volumes compared to the market size as they are expensive to run and operate so only large companies have graduate programs

So for chemical and process graduates the key is to increase your consultancy experience or client-side experience in order to move into the graduate roles later, But like everything you must show initiative and discipline. For international graduates you cannot afford to wait for work you must be working and developing skills in engineering which makes you more and more employable.

On the GAP program I can show you how to move into roles anywhere in Australia, With your discipline you are predominantly in Heavy industries, like Mining, Chemicals production, Mineral Processing and food production to name a few. There are always lots of work opportunities if you know where to look.

For those who are studying for a masters of Engineering management

Your career progression is normally as follows:

Consulting engineers in any discipline follow the following path

Graduate Engineer (0-3 years)

Junior Engineers (3-5 ) years

Senior Engineer ( 5+ years)

Lead Engineer ( 7+ Years)

Principal Engineer (10-15 years)

Now depending on your skills depends on the level you climb to, not everyone makes Lead roles and especially Principal positions. As for engineering management, these roles are for engineers who are given the opportunity internally to manage multidiscipline, Mechanical, Process, electrical, Instrumentation, Civil and Structural These people tend to be highly technical and across all disciplines, they also watch the budget of who is completing the drawings and how the budget is tracking plus schedule to complete the drawings.

Drawings are never easy to complete they require a lot of third-party information such as vendor-certified drawing information or the client might need to finalise the location of a building, but everything must be provided before we can issue drawings for construction.

This requires a lot of interfacing between Vendors and clients in particular.
