Anybody know someone that works at any of the large refineries in the Beaumont/Orange area? My son is graduating from Oklahoma State in May with a degree in Chemical Engineering and he's still searching for a job. As a parent I'm really disappointed the economy has soured so bad and feel really bad for kids graduating college now. He has a 3.7GPA and has worked obviously extremely hard to obtain a very challenging degree. He wants to work for an ExxonMobil or Chevron type company in a "down stream" environment like you find at these refineries.

If anyone knows maybe someone on the inside with one of these companies please send me a PM or email me at briangrandlake@gmail.com. Myself and my son would very much appreciate it!

Congratulations to your son and to you for your support. Although I do not personally know of any Chemical Engineering jobs in the area you're asking about, you might expand your search along the Texas coast from Corpus Christi to Port Arthur and maybe a little further to Lake Charles, LA. Good Luck!
Here is a job search website with lots of CE jobs in Texas:

Perhaps he should look in Houston. It might not be the environment he wants now, but he could work on project design (engineering) that eventually takes him into the field (construction). Then he'll have both E&C experience which will definitely be more valuable.
