About PetrochemMaking Everyday Life Possible

A Growing Business That Needs You Now

Like many people, you may not know petrochemical—and all the ways it makes life better. The Petrochemical industry, Petrochem for short, is the source of everyday products like shoes and perfumes, paint and eyeglasses, bandages and game controllers. They all contain materials that come from the natural gas and crude oil processed by the Petrochemical industry.

You also may not know how much Petrochemical needs people like you right now. It’s expected to grow 30% in the next decade, so companies need to build their workforces. At the same time, many workers are retiring, leaving thousands of jobs open. And with natural gas growing and new plants popping up, there are amazing career opportunities. All you need is a couple years of college to qualify for high-paying jobs in Petrochemical.

Many jobs in Petrochem pay more than $50,000 a year and only require a 2 year degree
