Seeking Entry Level Position in Flavor/Fragrance Development

Posted: April 13, 2016
Preferred Location: All of USA. Willing to relocate to Canada, Europe
Name: Walter Zielenski


I am a student in chemical engineering expecting to graduate in May of 2016, and I'm seeking out a position in flavor or fragrance development. I have held internships in the past in flavor creation and encapsulation research, as well as consumer product fragrance analysis. Upon obtaining my first internship in the industry, I was absolutely captivated by the field. Finding myself in a position to develop and create the compositions used in foods or fragrant products once I graduate is my greatest goal as a student; I've already taken steps toward learning the types of raw ingredients used in the industry in my free time.

I have experience in the lab, both academically and professionally, and experience with GC, NMR, and MS. As a newly hired member of any creation team, I wish to bring a new creative perspective to apply to my projects, dovetailed with my engineering savvy to create cost effective yet delicious flavors. As a recent graduate, I would not be averse to moving for work.

Feel free to contact me on LinkedIn or email for any additional information.
