Formulation Chemists combine different chemicals in the hopes that there will be no chemical reaction. This is useful when manufacturing products like cosmetics, paint, and detergent. Sample resumes for this position highlight skills like recording and documenting SOP/GMP forms and batch records, and compiling and analyzing test information for out-of-spec instruments. Those interested in becoming Formulation Chemists should at least be able to show a bachelor's degree in a related field on their resumes, though master's or even doctoral degrees, as well as direct experience in the field, can be beneficial to securing the job.
