icy water is on a distinguished road

speaking as someone who has a degree in chem engrg, there are simply not enough jobs for chem engrs. Few of my friends join the chemical industry and very very few in oil and gas. Some join pharmaceutical companies. And quite a number are in semiconductors...

Let me give you an analogy. If you want to build a condo, how many architects would you need? How many construction workers would you need?

For banking and finance, it would be easier for someone with business, accountancy, economics or mathematics to enter. Engineering most probably end up in technology & operations.

If you are worried and want to be versatile, electrical or mechanical would be your best bet but dont expect high salary.
