Hello! Here is a nice list by the American Chemical Society that gives an overview of chemistry-related jobs: http://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/careers/whatchemistsdo/careers.html

Also, you can search some job finding websites using the keyword chemistry to see the diverse jobs available. I was surprised to find how many jobs you can get with just a Bachelor's of Science in Chemistry! Good luck!

With a bachelor’s degree you can work in laboratories or clinics across the country. Tasks include researching chemicals/methods, running equipment, performing tests, and preparing chemicals. Teaching chemistry at a junior high or high school level is another popular career path.

Most people choose to use their bachelor’s degree in chemistry to gain admittance to graduate schools, medical schools, or law schools. A masters or PhD in chemistry will provide many more job opportunities than a bachelor’s degree. The two main career fields are academia and corporate research and development. In academia, you can become a professor and design and supervise your own research programs. Academia focuses on discovering and developing cutting edge methods and working with intelligent and interesting colleagues across the world. Corporate research and development is faster paced than academia. Chemists work with the company and other coworkers to find and develop new materials/techniques and help integrate them into the company.
