Nowadayes, admission in engineering fields does not guarantee the job for graduates and finding appropriate job is the main issue for all graduates especially chemical engineers. Chemical engineering students in Iran needs more skills than usual education programs presented by faculties. It seems, it seems that wide range of industry and the distance between industries requirements and academic educations are the substantial reasons for student's unfamiliarity with job fields. In this article, first, the job divisions for chemical engineers in Iran market is listed, then, employment possibilities in engineering consultant companies, Design projects and building industrial complexes are reviewed in detail. Considering the process need of project design, the role of chemical engineers and it`s required skills have been counted while providing some suggestion in every section regarding primary educations in engineering faculties. Providing such suggestions will increase the student's recognition of employment possibilities in industry of this country so that they can choose the job field consciously. Also these additional courses will direct the students personal efforts in order to find their ideal job.
