I'm one semester away from finishing my bachelor's degree in chemical engineering at Iowa State. There are two main things on my mind right now: finding a job and relocating. I have a 3.5 cum GPA (major GPA is like 3.7). But I have no internship experience, which is bad. For a long time, I've thought about extending my education through a masters/phd, but that's a big commitment, especially for a phd. I would rather get some experience in the field and figure out what I really like. Out of all the possible career paths in chem e, R&D seems the most appealing to me. What's the best, least stressful way to get there? Also, I really want to relocate. I've thought about going to california, texas, or new england. So far, Austin seems like a really good place to live. But I can't get any job offers from there if I live in Iowa. And if I move there in a leap of faith and come out empty handed, I'd be SOL. One thing I've though about is getting a Masters from UT-Austin, but that school is ridiculously competitive for chem e (It's top 10). any advice?
