I am a 22 year old Chemical Engineer working at a Solvent Extraction and Electro Winning plant for a copper mine (my title is metallurgist I). I graduated with a BS in Chemical Engineering this past December. I love my job but I have always been interested in learning about different processes. I plan on staying in minning for another 5 to 7 years but I am afraid that if I want to change industries later on I will be stuck in minning. How common is it to switch indistries with years of experience. I will be staring my MBA this August and then pursue my MS in CHEE while working.
I appriciate any advice
